Londoners could be on the brink of facing travel hell, with some forecasters predicting snow next month with temperatures expected to plummet.
It is expected to be the coldest winter in years, with snow forecast across the country.
Exacta weather has predicted snow could be with us in the next few weeks, with temperatures plummeting. A spokesman said: "From the late part of next weekend and into the following week will see things turning much colder.
"This will then pave the way for a quite cold and much more traditional November period to end the meteorological autumn. This will also bring an increase in the snow risk levels across the country in among some periods of unsettled weather in November.
"The first of these notable wintry blasts and potentially widespread snow showers will occur during the early part of November and there will also be ample amounts of fog and frost for many within this period too."
Exacta's James Madden added that we should be prepared for "a colder than average winter this year".
He said: "There will be phases of strongly negative plunges particularly from December to January."
The Met Office says the outlook for November remains uncertain, but indicated that stormier and windier weather looked less likely than normal at this time of year.
Emma Sharples from the Met Office says they cannot be certain what the weather has in store for November.
Their forecast for November states: "Indications suggest that at first northerly or north-westerly winds are likely to predominate over the UK, leading to lower than average temperatures for many and a widespread risk of frosts.
"The expectation is also for windier more showery conditions in the north, perhaps with snow over some higher ground."
The prediction continues to warn that "there is a signal for below average temperatures".
Environment spokesman Martin Tett told the Express that councils are prepared for temperatures to drop and will "protect residents and minimise disruption".
“We are well prepared for the cold with salt stockpiled and a fleet of state-of-the-art gritters ready to be deployed.”
