James Madden isn't a professional forecaster, he's just some random guy who writes up apocalyptic weather stories on his personal website every week and tabloids run his 'forecasts' as front page headlines. It'd be nice if there was some sort of body that would withhold a standard over these made up stories but as we know tabloids can print anything and everything with no repercussions

I read it for the lols. Then I clicked on their keith barry prediction story, they had the 3 severe winters of 47,63 and 09/10 listed. Their summary of 09/10 Winter was well written...they said temperatures reached a frosty -5 lol. Honestly who writes these articles

Yes I think even the most gullible are copping on to this type of trash forecasting. Wasn't he predicting snowmaggedon back for early November? The reality of the charts for the next 10 days doen not lie. It isn't good for coldies. However, hints and subtle nods and winks from other sources of pattern change after Christmas. I remain unconvinced.

Madden is a gom,but those that buy his nonsense scripts are much bigger goms

That said,didn't mt cranium change his winter forecast to include a deeper cold and snow for mid December both here and England?

Well that doesn't raise confidence in the rest of his forecast either does it? Unless he meant what we're having now and the actual outlook for the next week which he obviously didn't

Read the Indo this morning. On about that James Madden guy. What has happened to that newspaper? No better than the Daily Mail.

Agree with all that has been said above but have a look at some of the snow threads from during the week here smd you'll see many respected posters getting it badly wrong. Still at least they aren't charging to get it wrong.

I wonder what happened to the Indo. Was is Tony O'Reilly being ousted from the helm? Their standards have dropped to nothing more than disgusting, and it's not only the reporting of the weather

I really cannot believe that the Irish Independent has run with the attached drivel from James Madden. Front page of the Sunday Independent website today, Sunday 14th December, 2014.

Thank you Sunday Independent, endless questions of "when is the snow coming Daddy?" from now until St Patrick's Day. Infuriating, we don't live in Sweden.

i've seen this article before somewhere
if i will need to choose who to believe i would go with M.T. Cranium predictions as he at least is not predicting things that may (less than 20% i think) happen.

but as a snow lover i would like to believe independent.ie
