The past weekend models have and continue to suggest a slow down in westerlies and more substantial (less transient) build-up of heights over the Atlantic which hints at more northerly, even easterly flow for Western Europe.

If the above comes to fruition then it could turn similarly cold to last November which brought significant hill snow and nasty icy conditions through Central Scotland with daytime highs struggling to get above freezing and nights which dipped to -8C in Glasgow, -12C at Braemar.
