It is snowing heavily yet again (the snow came up over the top of Elisa's wellington boots, which means that it is at least 14" deep in places on the grass) and the Met Office forecast for the next TWO WEEKS is:
"Snow showers are likely to become heavy and frequent at times giving further falls of several cm in many areas, with the potential for over 20cm locally." (5th and 6th January) and the outlook from 6th-15th January reads: "More frequent and heavier snow showers are likely in the north and east where further significant snowfall is likely. The further outlook will continue cold with further widespread frosts. However, it will probably not be as cold as the previous week, with perhaps fewer wintry showers."
Of course, the BBC weather forecasts on both Radio 4 and the News channel simply pass us by with a comment along the lines of "And there are more severe weather warnings for Scotland. But it is forecast to be chilly overnight in south east England, with temperatures as low as -2C." Up here the local Met Office are predicting "around -10C over the next few days - much warmer than last week".
