On Tuesday, two inches of rain will fall this week starting in the West and other parts including Yorks., which were hit by floods on Thursday.

Britain will be colder than Helsinki this week as a blast of polar air could bring the coldest autumn night this year for England and Scotland.

The Met office warned temperatures could drop to -8.1C in the Highlands on Monday night.

In the North, temperatures are set to drop to -6C and parts of the South are bracing for -3C.

The North faces snow flurries on higher ground, which would make it England’s earliest winder snow for 11 years.

Most days will struggle to hit double-digits this in the North this week as the South will see temperatures go from 10C to 12C.

Met Office forecaster Greg Dewhurst said: “Slow-moving rain returns to the West on Tuesday and to Yorkshire and other parts from Thursday for the rest of the week, with bands of rain.

“It’s cold in the northerly flow. Monday night could be the coldest night of autumn in Scotland and England, exceeding -8.1C in Scotland and down to -6C in northern England.

“Snow showers could be seen on higher ground of Scotland, with a bit of snow over northern England.

“Daytime maximums will be 7-9C for most to start the week, easing to 12C in the South from midweek as the flow turns southerly, but still only 7-10C in the North.

“It stays unsettled from next weekend onwards, with bands of rain through the following week.”

John Hammond,ex-BBC and Met Office forecaster of weathertrending, said: “There’s a lot more rain to come, and that’s worrying news for those hit by flooding.

“After a brief drier interlude, low pressure will take up residence. Flooding concerns continue.”

Large parts of the country are still dealing with the catastrophic floods as the chaos is set to continue until Tuesday.

The Environment Agency has issued 52 flood warning and 91 flood alerts.

This past week, the rivers Severn and Avon burst their banks leaving properties waterlogged in Glos. and Worcs.

Residents in the Midlands and Yorks. are still battling to clear their homes.

Meteorologist Sophie Yeomans said: “There is some rainfall around, but it’s looking light and patchy.

“Sunday has the highest risk of rainfall, but the start of next week is looking quite dry.

“There’s light cloud and rain around in some of the areas in the north of England and also down in Shropshire and the West Midlands.

“But there’s no long-lasting or heavy rain – it’s a good situation.”

The Environment Agency said: “River flooding is expected to continue in the Lower River Don washlands area in South Yorkshire through to at least Tuesday, where properties will continue to flood and there will be continued travel disruption.”
