A "secondary" cyclone caused by the deep low-pressure system will make its way into Britain as temperatures continue to dive.
With forecasters warning of a nationwide threat of heavy rain, the potential of torrential conditions could lead to the possibility of floods in some regions of the country.
Jim Dale, meteorologist for British Weather Services, said: “A low-pressure system stays to the north of Scotland towards the end of the week, but a front coming into the country will drag cold air behind it, so we are looking at a potential cold plunge at the end of the week.

“A secondary low-pressure system, which is a breakaway low from the first one, comes in next weekend, and there is cold northerly air associated with this.
“This week is generally going to be unsettled, with more of a risk of heavy rain, and there will be the added risk of some high winds.”
Experts have said that Britain could be in for a tough winter as the Met Office said "global weather patterns" will have a knock-on effect on the UK’s weather this winter.
Chief meteorologist Paul Davies said: “Long-range outlooks are driven by global weather patterns and even if these influences, for example, suggest a higher-than-usual chance of a mild winter this would not rule out having cold spells, or even a cold winter.
“These scenarios would just be less likely based on the information available at the time the forecast is made. It is therefore also important to examine our regular monthly updates to the long-range outlook.”
According to James Madden, forecaster for Exacta Weather, the wintry cold weather this month will be a change in the pattern that has seen warmer weather over the last few years.

He said: “There is the potential for a period of wintry cold weather during the end of October and into the start of next month.
"This will bring a contrast to the warmer weather we have seen around this time of year in previous years.”
Met Office meteorologist Tom Morgan said: “Monday morning will see an improving picture with lots of sunshine for many parts of the KK, a bit more of patchy cloud in the north and a few scattered showers.
“For most it’s a fine and sunny picture in the afternoon, but temperatures will be a little bit down compared to the weekend."
