We had this a couple of years ago. Husband pretty much got the last plane into Heathrow from anywhere and got home in a blizzard for Christmas.
This year December 14th is the key day when his flight from India is due to land and it's also my eldest's last day of term at Uni... Fingers crossed the bad stuff will be postponed until December 17th when we'll all be home and can just pile on the jumpers and stay put.
Now the Daily Mail warns of the 'Pest from The West'
Link: Sub-zero Britain to warm up as Atlantic front sweeps in... but the 'Pest from the West' will bring more rain and the wet weather could last until Christmas | Mail Online
bringing dire consequences:
The dreaded 'Beast from the East' cold front has been vanquished by the 'Pest from the West' which will bring 80mph winds and heavy rain, the Met Office warned today.
Forecasters say that the Beast from the East, which was meant to blanket Britain in snow and freezing fog, is no more as the 'atmosphere changed its mind'.
Brits bracing themselves for snow don't need the sledges just yet as the UK is going to get battered by wind and rain instead thanks to the Pest from the West.
Never mind the weather... I'm finding the sensationalised wails from The Mail troublesome.
It's winter. The weather's rubbish and the forecasts inaccurate... It's hardly news.
Weather forecasters can barely get the weather right 3 days in advance, so what chance have they got when predicting weeks/months? The Mail probably uses seaweed & other 'folklore' weather forecasting techniques.
