    Just tell us the weather!!!!!

    I've attached a screen grab of the weather for Preston in the next few days. If you notice the severe weather warning at the top which seems to indicate that it will be 'custard' everywhere, when in fact it is warning of snow showers throughout most of the UK (and what constitutes 'severe' weather anyway in the Met Office's eyes? It appears that anything worse than a balmy August afternoon now gets a severe weather warning!). And below it indicates that there is to be no snow at all on Saturday and Sunday. I'd wish they'd just sort this out and actually tell us what is going to happen instead of showing all they symbols they can and hoping at least one of them will occur.

    Lol @ Custard... That'd confuse everyone... No doubt the railway's would blame the lack of service to it being the "wrong kind of custard"

    Surface Pressure charts are the only ones to trust in advance

    I've been tracking tomorrow's weather on Metcheck for about a week. It went down again though so it isn't fully reliable. Some models cause a VBScript error.

    My area has snow to the north and heavy rain to the south. We are on the edge of the yellow snow warning issued by the Met Office. I am predicting lots of ice and sleet, but the mixed weather either side means a change in a few degrees could cause a big change in conditions and dump either heavy rain or a nice flurry of snow over South London.

    met check mixed with meteox for 3 hour predictions tend to be quite accurate... for 3 hours ahead anyway!

    It's snowing here.

    And by snow I mean cold mushy rain.

    Rest assured if that's the case, I will be there with a straw and spoon ready to save anyone who is stranded!
