/ And so the wild snow predictions begin!
Is it to be believed? Or is this the same trollop they put out every year
You have just answered your own question haven't you?
I live in hope of just such a winter.
Who's an arse? George M? Or Jonathan P. I was at university with George where we shared many a fine adventure together.
Wow! That article is amazing. It completely discredits the Express, and tarnishes the name of the press, yet they still hire him.
I knew the tabloids regularly just invent the news, but that takes the biscuit.
Load of crap as usual! I don't know why there's an obsession with predicting snowy winters as opposed to mild ones. I guess it's more exciting, battle down the hatches etc. There will always be the romanticism of cold snowy winters also.
Rotating headline number 5 for a slow news day.
I saw an interview with an Express journalist who was questioned about the weather headlines. As he said - it sells newspapers and you don't know it's not going to happen.
I notice they quote Vantage Weather Services. From their website:
Vantage Weather Services
Autumn 2013: Largely typical autumn, but risk of extremes.
November looks to see more evenly balanced weather across the country, with a lessening degree of rainfall nationwide. Apart perhaps from the far north west, most areas should see a mix of dry, bright, and sunny weather, with a decreased amount of wet and windy conditions. Temperatures late month may well induce some early snow across the hills of Scotland and to the north of England. Towards the middle and latter part of the month under clear skies, frost activity can be expected, leading to chilly, bright, and crisp autumnal days. On balance, rainfall is expected to come in below the average for the majority of areas, with temperatures reflecting the norm.
Sounds apocalyptic to me!
probably hail rather than snow. woke me up this morning hammering on the window
Plenty of snow on the Mounth when you look north from Auchterhouse Hill today. Sith Chaillean looked particularly magical.
