UK weather forecast: Temperatures set to plunge below zero as warmth gives way to frosty mornings

Frost and freezing temperatures are expected to hit parts of the UK as a spell of colder weather begins to take hold this week.

Northern parts of Britain are likely to see some crisp mornings as autumn starts to set in, while the mercury could drop below zero on Tuesday night into Wednesday in the Scottish Highlands.

It comes after Storm Callum pummelled the country over the weekend, causing severe flooding in Wales and leaving at least three people dead.

At the same time, southern parts of England enjoyed unseasonably warm conditions, which look set to continue in the south east on Tuesday, where some places could see highs of 23C - before potentially falling into single figures at the weekend.

Despite some reports to the contrary, the Met Office said it did not expect snow to fall in the UK during October.

Heating oil prices post 20 pct rise on last year

The official sales period for heating oil began on Monday in Greece, with prices averaging out at 1.14 euros per liter – 20.7 percent higher than the average rate a year earlier.

...taxation on the commodity in Greece remains high, accounting for 48 percent of the product’s retail price – which represents a clear incentive for smuggling.

Retailers report zero orders for the fuel so far, after sales posted a mammoth decline of 62.4 percent in the period from 2008 to 2017.

Not totally sure this relates to the above, but I'd think it does, somehow:

Windows 10 Audio Not Working After Installing Latest Windows Updates

Lot's of reports are coming in that Windows 10 users are finding that their audio is no longer working on their computer after installing the latest Windows updates.

Windows Updates have become a complete mess lately, with the latest October 2018 Update deleting user's files, Patch Tuesday updates causing crashes because of incompatible keyboard drivers, and now users are finding that their audio drivers are broken.

While there has been no word about this from Microsoft, numerous users are posting on Reddit, the Microsoft forums, and Twitter about their audio no longer working after installing this week's Patch Tuesday updates.  Windows 10 just states "No Audio Device is installed".

Thankfully, users have come up with a solution on their own, which is described below.
