Scots have been warned temperatures are set to drop as an arctic wind rolls in and the country could be blasted with snow as early as this week.
Temperatures are set to plunge in the coming days across the UK as forecasters warn of harsh arctic winds approaching from the north.
Scots have been warned they are likely to see snowfall from November 21.
The Weather Outlook has reported a three per cent chance of snow falling in Aberdeenshire on November 19, which rises to 58 per cent on November 21.
Data from forecasters at WXCharts show temperatures could drop between -7C and -11C for some regions in the UK from the week of November 23.
However, the Met Office believes there is expected to be a low risk of wintry showers between November 17 and 26.
But there is a high chance of frost and fog — especially in the north.
Meteorologist Tyler Ros from AccuWeather said: "The threat for snow between November 17-22 looks to be around normal for the time of the year, which is any accumulating snow is likely to occur in the higher elevations of northern England and Scotland.
"We do have to watch a cold snap that appears to move into eastern Europe early next week."
"If this bleeds westward towards the UK (with the core of the cold remaining in eastern Europe), then the temperatures will be near to slightly below normal during this stretch."
