Due to the stormy front, graphs from WXCharts predict temperatures will fall to freezing in some areas towards the end of the month.

Brian Gaze, director and forecaster for The Weather Outlook, warned there could be “nighttime frosts” towards the end of the month.
He said: ”Towards the end of the month, some computer models are indicating that high pressure will become centred to the north or west of the UK.
“If that happens there would be a growing likelihood of colder weather leading to a risk of nighttime frosts becoming quite widespread.
“There could be sleet or snow showers over high ground in the northern half of the UK.”
Over the weekend, the Met Office warned that higher parts of the UK are likely to see some snowfall towards the latter part of October.
Forecasters said a “colder period” is starting soon,. “Brinkwire Summary News”.
