It wasn't predicted by the media.It was reported by the media that the same two blokes with no meteorological qualifications what so ever had again
made a wild stab in the dark and randomly predicted that it "could be quite cold this winter in England",the same as they do every year because they
like to see their names in the news.
I would like a slice of that.So to guarantee my 15 minutes of fame,I predict that next summer might be hot at times and at other times it might be a
bit less hot.
Most UK winters are fairly mild anyway until after the new year. Last year was too, and then we had frigid temperatures here until around the end of
March. We've had a few frosty morning so far and as it's only just into winter so plenty of time for any change to occur yet.
as i mentioned in another thread ... i am still finding sneaky spiders and putting them outside .. there are still baby flies floating around ....
I dont recall seeing spiders and flies this late in the year ... i dont think its normal, but admittedly am not certain ...
near end of november ... A butterfly fluttered past when i was walking the dog ... again i thought that was quite unusual
also remember reading last year ... some uk weather guy that does his own site and blog ... he claimed that every year, the newspapers (perhaps
tabloids) run a scary wintry weather front page headliner .. because IT SELLS !! ... he then showed example after example of scary winter headliners
for every single year, from various UK papers past decade or so .... none of which ever really materialised into anything other than quick revenue
for the paper ...
We had ice and snow at the beginning of December, and it snowed again last week. My heating hasn't been off for two months so it can't be that mild.
A white xmas would be nice but it's looking like it's going to be just another rainy day as per.
