The West will be hit by the first icy blast of winter next week, according to forecasters.

Over the weekend, temperatures are predicted to start dropping, heralding a week where wrapping up warm will be the order of the day.

The region is not predicted to get the wintry showers that might hit some parts of the UK, such as the East coast, but things are going to get chilly.

A Met office spokesman said temperatures may struggle to get above 5ºC (41ºF) during the day, and frost and ice could be regular features overnight.

However, they are not, as yet, predicting the sort of winter that caused council grit stocks to run low last time round.

The spokesman said: "Britain will see snow in the next few days, but this will be limited primarily to areas of higher ground and in the North or North-East of the country.

Eastern U.S. Temperatures May Drop Below Normal in Last Two Weeks of Month by Brian K. Sullivan

The last two weeks of October may see temperatures in the eastern U.S. drop to below normal, forecasters said.

The forecast for Oct. 18 to Oct. 24 calls for below-normal temperatures from Texas to Maine, according to the U.S. Climate Prediction Center in Camp Springs, Maryland.

The cold snap may extend into November, said Jim Rouiller, senior energy meteorologist at Planalytics Inc. in Berwyn, Pennsylvania.

“There is a chance of a major pattern change in the later half of the month,” Rouiller said. “The potential is there for a significant cold-weather event.”

A cold snap may drive up the price of natural gas, used for heating. Moderate temperatures, a lack of hurricanes in the main production areas of the Gulf of Mexico and surplus inventories have helped drive natural gas prices down 35 percent this year.

NEW YORK — A treacherous commute of lashing winds, slick streets and low visibility awaited workers Monday as a winter storm that dumped about a foot of snow on southern New England continued crawling up the East Coast, stranding thousands of airline, bus and rail passengers.

The blizzard conditions wreaked havoc on travelers from the Carolinas to Maine and forced the suspension of operations at some of the nation's busiest airports.

Airlines scrambled to rebook passengers on thousands of canceled flights — more than 1,400 out of the New York City area's three major airports alone — but said they didn't expect normal service to resume until Tuesday.

Amtrak canceled train service from New York to Maine after doing the same earlier for several trains in Virginia. The nation's largest commuter rail system, New York's Long Island Rail Road, also suspended service.

Scotland has called in the Army to clear a fresh wave of ice and snow that has crippled the country’s transport network.

Edinburgh City Council is in discussions with the Army at Redford Barracks about drafting in troops to clear residential streets after 30 inches of snow fell in parts of the capital.

The deluge – which appeared to take the authorities by surprise – saw people forced to sleep in their cars overnight or abandon them on the highways as motorways and A-roads were left impassable.

The recent snowfall is the heaviest the city has seen for about 50 years, and temperatures are expected to stay resolutely below freezing throughout Scotland until Thursday - leaving thick sheets of ice and compacted snow on roads and pavements.

The big freeze will continue to grip Britain for weeks to come, forecasters said last night.

The predication came as more severe weather warnings were issued and parts of Scotland and North East England were hit by up to 16 ins of snow.

The snow will spread across the Pennines towards Manchester today and also move inland from eastern England towards the South East and London, the Met Office said.

A spokesman for the MeteoGroup forecasters said: "People should be bracing themselves for more cold weather for the working week and beyond."

SANDY, Utah (ABC 4 News) - Monday night's temperatures got down right frosty, some temperatures even reached record lows. And one farmer says that's a little too cool, too quickly. "Every farmer knows we're at the mercy of mother nature," Farmer Leo J. Farnsworth told ABC on Monday.

The Farnsworth farm in Sandy temperatures reached 45 degrees and for a farm that grows a wide range of vegetables and fruit, some produce was harmed by the cold weather, "we'll be impacted economically by the melons, they're the most endanger and perhaps the tomatoes too, " Farnsworth continued. Turns out, cold weather harms the growth of produce and can even kill it. Farnsworth took ABC4 out into his fields where we were able to see vines wilted from the weather, "the melons were affected and may not grow and we may not get another batch of ripe tomatoes."
