- Christmas weather doom…
Saw a link on faceache, the express were again forecasting loads of snow. Utter tosh!
The Express has been forecasting death, doom and destruction for weeks now. They get it from an outfit called ‘Positive Weather Solutions’, which is a guy called Johnathon Powell who is a known rogue and charlatan in meteorological circles.
The Express is so economical with the truth that the Met Office has to put out press releases denying what they claim they said.
Today’s Express says
BBC weatherman Michael Fish declared confidently: “It WILL be a White Christmas.”

On Christmas Day there will be wintry showers across Scotland.CountZeroMember
It’s got to the point where the Beeb’s West Country news presenters ask their Met Office bloke about the Excess forecasts, and you can almost see him doing a facepalm on screen, he’s just too professional to do it. He does heave a big sigh, though.Posted 4 years ago
WeatherPro, Meteogroup’s app, is my go-to source for weather forecasts.KevevsMember
hmm, my conspiricy theory is that The big supermarkets agree to spend a fortune on advertising in the press, only if the press agree to bang on about incoming crazy winter weather all over their front pages. Supermarkets pile high snow shovels, de-icer, salt,tins of soup, beans and other “essentials” etc at front of stores and rake in the fear-spenditure 😉Posted 4 years agocloudnineSubscriber
Wind forecast for the next week is err.. very windy and sideways rain.
50-80mph winds currently forecast for me (west wales) with low front after low front for the rest of the week. Basically.. windy with rain and sometimes very windy with sideways rain for the next week. No way will it snow.Posted 4 years agopiedi di formaggioSubscriber
It’s not all doom & gloom. I now have the perfect excuse for not bothering to go into London on Christmas eve 😀

Next update due: 21:00
On Monday 23 December the weather forecast indicates that a storm with winds of up to 70mph will affect our network from around 18:00 and throughout the night. Based on this forecast we have taken a decision to run trains at reduced speeds from 18:00 until the end of the day. These speed restrictions will limit the number of trains that we can run, particularly during the evening rush hour and customers who are able to do so are strongly advised to complete their journeys early. We will publish full details of the reduced evening rush hour service tomorrow.
On Tuesday 24 December we do not expect to run any trains on any routes across our Network until 10:00. This is to allow us to run train at low speed along each line on our network in daylight in order to check for damage to overhead wires and/or any debris from the storm. This will ensure that we can safely run trains and we will update customers throughout Tuesday morning as lines reopen. Customers are advised not to travel until 10:00 and to check their line is open prior to setting out.
