The Met Office has predicted a wet and mild winter this year. They also predicted a 'Barbeque Summer' which they got wrong. So should we expect the opposite of what the 'official' Met Office forecast for this winter might be The Opposite of a mild, wet winter is a cold, frosty one, with snow and wet windy weather with some periods of freezing, below average temperatures. Icy roads making driving, and travel hazzardous with all the usual ramifications. Local Councils have been caught out in recent years with a lack of winter salt and grit as a cosequence of the Met Offices long range forecasts being wrong. I don't appear to have seen any great preparations in the local council depots where I live in East Anglia area. The Eastern Counties tend to get any really wintery weather quite badly. Anyone one think differently, that the Met Office may be right about this years winter, or possibly totally wrong? Time to buy some new Winter Woolies, or remain with Autumn fashions throughout this years winter?
