Whatever the Weather.

Ok, so I am pretty damn sick of newspapers screaming at me that it's the winter apocalypse and we are all going to freeze to death, so I have written the weather forecast for the week ahead in a way that pretty much covers it. It's bloody winter, what do people expect? Do the papers think we are really that stupid? I'm sure the Daily Express run the same article about 30ft of snow every year, you know the one? Yep, the one where we are all going to die. 

So if you want to know what the weather holds for you in the week ahead, read on. 

(I may have a new career as a meteorologist here)

Dear UK, 

Much of the UK could be blanketed in up to 15cm of winter over today and tomorrow as temperatures plummet far below freezing.....because it is winter. 

More warnings have been issued for severe winter and freezing winter until Tuesday, with the elderly and anyone with underlying health conditions being urged to keep warm indoors rather than going out into the winter weather which is quite wintery in winter parts. 

Carrbridge, in the Scottish Highlands, is due to see wintery temperatures of -6C over the next 24 hours as one of the winteriest places in Britain. Even southern England is seeing the mercury dip below winter, with Reading in Berkshire expecting -2C, as well as Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire. 

A spokesperson for the Met Office said: “There is a 90 per cent probability of winter weather and winter conditions until noon on Monday in parts of England. This weather could increase the health risks to vulnerable patients and disrupt the delivery of services because winter catches us by surprise every time. Increasingly winter will spread from the North West across England on Thursday night and during Friday, with winter turning more wintry from the north. “Average temperatures are expected to continue falling through the weekend, with a northerly airstream likely to be established by Sunday. Winter is expected to become increasingly widespread through the period, with some extra winter likely in the north on Monday. There may be torrential winter, followed by widespread winter and anywhere in the country should expect outbursts of winter at any time during the winter months. Winter is expected to last for several more months of winter, with a chance of wintery winter spreading across the country until spring. 

The Met Office stated, it is winter, what did you expect?

Have you been in a winter that wasn't your fault? Maybe winter crept up on you unawares? Maybe winter smacked you in the face with its winteriness.  If so, dial, 0800-ITS BLOODY WINTER, WHAT DO YOU EXPECT? 

So now I'm dying to know. What's your weather like this week? 

Let me know.

  1. Yup, every morning my mother-in-law and I have the same conversation as we sip our tea and coffee: "ooh there's a frost out there. Must be cold". No sh*t Sherlock! It's January! In fact, my friend Gary said almost exactly this last weekend while we were out in Hyde Park - except not in quite so many words. Well said, Kellie.

  2. Lol, yup every year! It baffles me how transport, goods and service providers are always completely shut down! Xx

  3. Oh my god Irish people are obsessed with the weather. Swear to god, every conversation I've had in the past.....ten years has involved the weather. It's cold, yes it is, because it bloody FROZE last night. Of course it's cold. Yes, it's wet when it rains. And yes, it's windy when the wind blows. We have had several hour-long documentaries about the bad weather. And about the heatwave, whenever that was. And about dangerous weather. I will be surprised the day I get sunburn in January, otherwise EVERY YEAR IS THE SAME!!!!!!

  4. Hahaha this was brilliant. You never fail to make me smile!

  5. Totally agree I think it's the fact the UK is never prepared for snow so delays, road issues etc make it so much worse. This made me chuckle x

  6. Come February we'll be having devastating gale-force winds that bring the country to stand still when a wheelie bin gets blown over ...

    C xx

  7. This made me laugh so much! There's nothing more mundane than the British weather and everyone exaggerating it!
