"There will be lingering showers across England and Wales Thursday morning, while lingering all day across western Scotland.

"This will be the chilliest day since the spring for many locations. Glasgow and Edinburgh will struggle to reach 10C, London will struggle to reach 12C in the afternoon.

"It would not be surprising to see snow showers occur in the Scottish Highlands on Thursday.

"A break in the action will occur Friday to Saturday for many, while another cold front will move through on Sunday with more rain.

"This looks to set up for another unsettled week for the United Kingdom for the last full week of October."
