Even London could be in on the wintry weather, with the Met Office telling Tyla the capital could expect some "wet snow" on Wednesday and Thursday of this week.
Sadly, Londoners will only be subjected to rain showers on Monday and Tuesday.
A spokesperson told Tyla: "In London, rain can be expected on Monday and Tuesday. By the time Wednesday and Thursday come around, there could be some wet snow in the far north of London, but this isn't expected to stick."
Looks like Londoners can cancel their snow day and reach for a brolly instead...
