Glad I saw that DM article......it'll save me months of looking at those pesky weather models and reading all the prognostications here and on other forums.

I can now go and confidently buy some thermal underwear, woolens, bread and fuel in anticipation of this imminent Arctic onslaught in early 2020, four months away.

Last segment on the news on today fm at 12 noon is reporting that Britain might get hit by a 'beast from the east' next January/February. Who sanctions such items as "news"?

I'm currently working on a post in regards to this for the Winter 2019/20 thread . As always, newspapers hype up utter rubbish but the source for this hype is a bit interesting and different to previous years. Details to come. Ignore the media releases anyway.

Every year you can guarantee Daily Mail will post these 2 headlines in some shape and form.

"Hottest Summer on record due to hit, Britain to have a 2 month heatwave"

"The Big Freeze, Britain set to have the coldest Winter on record."

Rinse. Latter. Repeat.

You have to admire them, two articles ready to re-print every year.

Return of Beast from the East 2020???

Anyone want to weigh in on the talk on the radio this morning that Jan/Feb 2020 may see the UK experiencing “Beast from the East” conditions? Seems ridiculously far out to be saying such a thing.

Mod Note: @KingJeremy Merged your thread in here.

They publish this sort of article every winter. No science to it....just to sell papers!

But but but it's in the Daily Star
The prediction has been made in one of the first long-range UK weather forecasts ever attempted, from the University College London (UCL).

Daily Express must be fuming at this. Piers Corbyn is the king of wrong weather.

I cringe everytime I see this headline. And it seems to be getting earlier each year ( a bit like the Christmas ads)
Great consistency I’ll give them that.

Nobody take these seriously. Impossible to predict this far out. I don’t have any faith in long range forecasts anymore.
