On the summary on the BBC homepage for tomrrow it says heavy snow. Click on detailed forecast and it changes to light snow. Click on the 3 hourly breakdown of weather and not a bit of snow is forecast.
Aaarrrggghhhh because it's Christmas and I can't be bothered getting annoyed
Apparently we are having light cloud and sunny spells according to the local BBC weather page, the local weather hasn't long finished with a warning of heavy snow and accumulations of upto 15cm. I am enjoying the guessng game.
It's annoying me too! I'm hoping to drive from Oxford to H.Wycombe tomorrow to see an old friend.. we got snowed off last attempt... and every forecast I have seen is totally different!... heavy snow, light shower... no snow... who knows?!
Think I'll go with the 'let's look out of the window shall we?' forecast
The online BBC weather always seem to paint the more optimistic picture - it seems to be more of a best case scenario forecast. The TV weather seems more realistic - it beats the hell out of me as to why they're different.
I find the BBC/Met office always forecast extreme weather (heavy snow/heavy rain/bright sun) three days in advance and as you get closer it gets more normal.
So the heavy snow for Saturday forecast on Wednesday was light snow by yesterday and is now one snow shower. When I check the 24 one it's no snow at all. Also the weather seems to slip back a day so now it's light snow on Sunday. Take it all with a pinch of salt I reckon (no pun intended).
