Have a read of this, you should ignore every tabloid weather story like the plague, especially from the Express.

Good for the Guardian, but if zombie Express readers want to spend 30p on a peurile rag thats their problem

How about a charter ban on referencing baseless media weather articles? The good and valid sources are well known on the forum.

A charter ban is a bit extreme. If people want to discuss/reference/critique these tabloid reports they can do it in this general 'weather in the media' thread

Didn't they promise that last winter?

Someone should sue the Express for causing needless distress and expenditure by local authorities (okay I doubt the average council takes that rag seriously!)

Once again it is the season for speculation and big headlines regarding what the weather will do over the winter period. The front page of the Daily Express (Saturday 12th October) claims: ‘Worst winter for decades: Record-breaking snow predicted for November’.

We saw similar headlines last year and instead winter 12/13 ended up being only the 43rd coldest on record with an average temperature of 3.3C and flooding until the turn of the year.

Comment from Joe Public under the Express "worst winter since '47" story

Quote:
Go to the beach and pick up a pebble.

Take it home and place outside on the windowsill.

If the pebble is wet its raining

If the pebble is warm its sunny.

If the pebble is cold its cold.

If you can't find the pebble its foggy.

Who needs the Met office.

They publish this sort of article every winter and nearly every week! When reading the Express you should also have a good stock of Saxa!!!
