From the Bristol Post:
Quote:
Bristol is braced for sub-zero temperatures and widespread ice on Friday and into Saturday. But could the city also be in line for some snow flurries?
The forecast keeps changing but Met Office experts are still predicting snowfall over Bristol on Friday.
Driving conditions on Friday and Saturday morning are expected to be treacherous as temperatures dip below freezing.

I'd like to see how well you would do on the top of the Ben in such conditions

What I'm getting at is how outlandish the headlines are when they quote temps and conditions as if they are widespread when in reality they are short lived and in areas where few if any people live. I guess I should expect that from the Daily Fail.

It was a valid and evident point. The obverse is in summer when somewhere in the UK is 29C and it's 'hotter than the Sahara' that day!

Seems the fog has reached Seattle, massive flight delays today on all the Seattle flights.

915am flight just left at 345pm.

Fog has improved a bit in Vancouver but a bit colder today.

I do remember the winter of 1978, living in Plymouth, where the whole city was snowed in - you could move around within it (with some difficulty), but couldn't get out of it.
