Or maybe should be in predictions
Its not the Mail this time but the Express (just/almost as reliable)
Heavy and persistent snow, freezing gales and sub-zero temperatures threaten to grind the country to a standstill for up to FIVE MONTHS, horrified long-range weather forecasters have warned.
The impending bout of extreme weather will come as a shock and forecasters have warned Britons should not to be lulled into a false sense of security by the recent mild conditions.
January is currently showing signs of temperatures hitting “record-breaking” lows meaning parts of the country could see the mercury plunge to -27C (-17F).
James Madden, forecaster for Exacta Weather said “significant snowfall” is likely in WEEKS with savage frosts and thick winter fogs threatening widespread misery.
The canadian geese are already here for over wintering (started arriving weeks ago which i thought seemed earlier than usual) a lot of berries on the trees but that could just be because we had a good spring summer.
I have seen pics of 3-4ft drifts here (sthrn england) from decades ago but never seen more than 2-3cm since i moved here 20+yrs ago.

Alberta is a little colder, -10 ish.
So far, our coldest went to -39 with windchill of -46.
A little early for that cold, but otherwise a normal winter.
We've been covered in snow for about a month or so
Our geese left a few weeks ago, came back, and left again.
