'Blood rain' forecast in the UK for Halloween

John Hall London

Weather forecasters are predicting that the south-east of England will be hit with 'blood rain' ahead of Halloween.

The Met Office has said the weirdest weather on record will continue this week -- a 20C Indian summer is set to be followed by snow, with blood rain thrown in for good measure.

Temperatures are set to soar to 20C -- but the Indian summer is not set to last as snow is predicted for the end of the week.

A wave of hot air from North Africa is set to sweep through the United Kingdom from tomorrow bringing sunny spells and temperatures in the high teens across the UK.

It could also bring blood rain -- rain carrying red dust from the Sahara.

And freezing arctic winds are set to send temperatures plummeting at the end of the week, with snow forecast in the north of England and Scotland by next weekend.

Temperatures are predicted to sink to around 8C degrees in the Midlands and 6C in Scotland.
