The forecast said: “Confidence becomes low towards the end of the month.
“However, the early part of the forecast period will likely see a gradual transition to a generally more unsettled pattern across the whole of the UK.
“Spells of rain and showers are likely, with these turning wintry over high ground in the north and northwest.
“There may also be the odd settled spell at times during this period, but they are likely to be short-lived.
“Temperatures likely to stay at or just below average throughout.”
Meanwhile, as the UK approaches Christmas Met Office forecasters predicted there would be overnight fog and frost in the fortnight from November 1 to November 15.
It said: “Confidence is low for this period, but the generally unsettled wet and windy theme is expected to gradually transition to a more settled picture through early November, especially in the south of the UK.
“Elsewhere, showery and windier conditions may remain more prevalent in the north.
“Temperatures may dip slightly below normal in the more settled periods, allowing for an increasing likelihood of overnight frost and fog developing.”
It comes after the UK was hit with rain and temperatures as low as 0.9C in some parts of the UK.
A 1,000 mile wide cold snap could also see the mercury dive to -10C in the coming days.
The Weather Outlook forecaster Brian Gaze has said an “early winter” is on its way, with freezing temperatures expected this month.
Mr Gaze said: “It looks like an early winter, with the cards stacked in favour of a cold second half of autumn due to La Niña.
“-10C is expected in Scotland and -7C in England by late November, with snow on Scottish mountains now, in northern England from early November and the South at risk from late November.”
