They do what they are intending to do - create publicity.  

Because one day, one super special day when we finally get 100 days of snow they can say 'We told you so!'

trolling at it's finest.

Only wish he had been around in the 70s when I was a kid, a massive Coldie and my parents used to buy the Express... "Mum, Dad, we're getting a SNOW BOMB!!!!"

So they have the three biggest weather "EXPERTS" in one article all gunning for the same thing.

The classic Jamesie comment of "“Colder conditions will be accompanied by potentially countrywide snow events particularly around the periods of the 12th to the 17th and the 21st to the 29th of December." is a bust already, 2 days in with 12C and rain. Do people really believe this sort of rubbish, nah surely not?

Anyone know if they get it right with their scatter gun reporting?

There should be an online petition started against DE for the harm this is doing to the pensioners who are worrying if they can afford heating for the DE's supposed 100 year storm/snow bomb headlines.

They remind me of round metal things that are used to open doors/drawers.

Unbelievably the absurd Nathan Rao is now getting the Mirror to pay him for his b*ll*cks: http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/theres-every-chance-white-christmas-9468502

Note the first sentence, apparently written by a computer: "Britain is set for snow in the run-up to Christmas as a bitter blast sweeps in from the North Police." EH???? The 'bitter blast' will consist of night time mins of, um, 0 to -2C. Wow, that'll threaten some December records...or would do in Lisbon.

Aha...rant on **

A broken clock is right twice a day.   Rao and his "experts" have a long, long way to go to reach anything like that level of accuracy :D

(Although Corbyn does claim higher much accuracy since be beleives that any time between 01.30 and 04.30 is the same as 03.00  ....)

I bet oh Nathan feels he has hit the "mark" with his current  headline in the Daily Express with his

A MAMMOTH superstorm will rip through Britain on CHRISTMAS DAY unleashing a 70mph-plus WEATHER BOMB

.. and within the first three sentences we have smattering of "Likely" & "Could"

BBC monthly outlook

Monday 19 December Published at 10:00

Monthly Outlook

Summary

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas...

It's been a fairly stagnant week across the UK. Sunshine has been in short supply for many and mist and fog have been common, especially across the south. It's also been fairly mild for this time of year with not too much in the way of frost around, and there certainly wasn't any snow. You could be forgiven for wondering what season we are in, but watch this space, as the weather is going to change.

Monday 19 December—Monday 26 December

Here comes the weather!

Monday starts off on a very similar note to Sunday, with potentially disruptive fog around across England. After a little rain in the north west some cooler, clearer conditions move in here. On Tuesday we see strong winds, potentially severe gale force, across the exposed north and west of Scotland and Northern Ireland. On Wednesday, this wet and windy weather travels down though northern England and Wales, all the while bringing cooler and clearer conditions behind. Overnight into Thursday there is likely to be some heavy rain and strong winds across England and Wales before this weather front finally clears away to the south east by Thursday afternoon for a bright, chilly day on both Thursday and Friday. There will also be some heavy, blustery showers in the north and west - these could be wintry over the high ground.

Into Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day we will see a succession of deep Atlantic depressions bringing strong winds, occasionally gales and perhaps even stormy conditions in the north west, and also heavy rain at times. There is the risk of some snow, but mainly across high ground in the north, so many of us won't see a white Christmas.

Tuesday 27 December—Monday 2 January

Hold onto your brollies

This wet and windy weather, typical for the UK in December, looks set to continue through to the end of December. So again, we will see mild interludes interspersed with colder, clearer conditions. When the mild conditions prevail, it's likely that we'll also see strong winds and some rain, perhaps heavy. In the cold interludes, frost and perhaps fog is possible by night.

Tuesday 3 January—Monday 9 January

A battle between pressure systems.

In the start of the new year, there is a lot of uncertainty surrounding the weather forecast; however it looks most likely for now that high pressure will tend to build in, bringing more settled conditions to what we will see over the festive period. We are most likely then to have longer drier and quieter spells and a greater likelihood of lower temperatures along with frost and fog by night.

Next week

Will we ever see any snow?

BBC monthly outlook

Monday 26 December—Sunday 1 January
2016 to end on a High

Storm Conor will pass to the north of Scotland on Boxing Day leading to a windy start to the week. The further north you are, the windier it will be, with Orkney and Shetland being battered by storm force winds. Showers will be mostly in Scotland, falling as snow to lower levels. Further south, it will be mainly dry and sunny. Storm Conor will move away into Norway on Tuesday and this will allow high pressure to gradually build across the British Isles. This will bring a lot of dry and settled weather during the rest of the week with sunshine and winds becoming lighter. It will also mean colder conditions, especially at nights when we will see a return to frosts, most widespread in the south and east with overnight fog patches slow to clear. Into the weekend and we will see further dry and settled weather over England and Wales but bands of rain will affect northwest Scotland and parts of Northern Ireland, sinking southwards on Sunday.

Monday 2 January—Sunday 8 January
Cold start to 2017

As we go into the first full week of January, a band of rain will move southwards to be followed by a colder northerly airflow. High pressure will still be close but this time positioned to the west of the British Isles with low pressure to the east. This set up will result in a cold and quite a strong north or northwesterly airflow across the country. The high pressure will maintain a lot of dry weather, especially in the south and west with frosts at nights in sheltered spots along with patches of fog. The cold northwesterly wind will bring some wintry showers to northern Scotland with some running down into northern England at times.

Monday 9 January—Sunday 22 January
High pressure never very far away

Throughout the autumn and so far this winter, high pressure has been a major influence on our weather. During much of the autumn, high pressure was situated over Scandinavia blocking weather systems from coming our way across the Atlantic, instead we kept a good deal of dry and settled weather. Even when storms have approached the British Isles, high pressure had protected one part of the country. In early December, Storm Angus affected southeast England but high pressure kept settled weather over Scotland. Then Storm Barbara and now Storm Conor affecting northern Scotland with high pressure keeping dry weather further south. As we go through January it looks as though this theme will continue with south and eastern parts of the British Isles seeing a lot of dry and settled weather. There will be sunshine by day but frost and fog patches at nights. More northern and western parts of the country will have spells of rain and stronger winds but also a little milder.

Next week

Will we see a January storm?

The Express have used a netweather chart in the latest ott story and conveniently cropped out the date and time of the chart

BBC monthly outlook

Monday 2 January—Sunday 8 January

A chilly start to the new year

A slow-moving cold front finally clears the UK to the south on Monday, and for all of us it will be a cold, breezy day with some wintry showers around, which may give a dusting of snow in the north. Further south, despite the low temperatures and the chill from the wind, there will be plenty of winter sunshine. Apart from gales and heavy rain in the far north of Scotland on Tuesday and Wednesday, much of the week will be dry and relatively calm, and it will turn just a touch milder as we go through the week. By the time Thursday and Friday come around, a new weather front will travel across the country, bringing a spell of wet and windy weather for all of us, before introducing much colder air by the end of the week.

Monday 9 January—Sunday 15 January

A real taste of winter

As we head through the rest of January, we are going to keep the cold feel, with frequent wintry showers in the north and west and plenty of crisp winter sunshine elsewhere. We will see a risk of icy patches and perhaps a little freezing fog in the south. By the end of the week, we may, at times, see some milder air and windy, wet weather in the north and west of the country.

Monday 16 January—Sunday 22 January

Keep your gloves within easy reach

It looks as though we will see a continuation of the general drier, settled and cold theme towards the end of January, with some wintry showers around and a risk of fog and frost. At times, we could see some milder, wet and windy interludes before returning to these cold conditions. There is even a small chance of seeing a cold easterly breeze develop, which could bring a risk of snow.

Next week

Is winter here to stay?

Please take them to court and expose their nonsense.
