The ‘experts’ at The Daily Express weather HQ are today warning that due to unforeseen weather patterns, Known to many of us as ‘Seasons’.
We are faced with cooler weather conditions with the potential for stronger winds and an increase in rainfall during December, January and Incredibly February aswell.
The Meteorologists who have just been awarded a degree in complete nonsense say we should be stockpiling food & water as getting to the shops could be near to impossible if Britain gets the expected arctic conditions.
When questioned about the past forecasts of impending Weather ‘CHAOS’ which went as far as to say we would get 100 days of snow and had just 15minutes the Chief General forecaster said “We cant be expected to be 100% accurate all of the time”,
“However new signals from the Global Nonsense System ‘GNS’ used by The Express, (Not to be confused with the far more accurate Global Forecasting System ‘GFS’ used by credible Weather Organisations) insist we have got to be right this year due to low solar output, an increase in fresh water into the North Atlantic and the fact the UK has drifted a cm further north since this time last year”.
Whatever the weather it looks like we are sure to be in for some interesting reading.
WEATHER experts are warning British & American citizens this week that the up-and-coming winter season may actually get cold and even wet at times, all depending on the temperature and rainfall amounts.
Forecasters said the change will even affect some trees, which will lose their leaves over the coming months.
Explaining the unusual phenomenon, meteorologist Martin Byrne warned that December, January & February will probably be colder than the rest of the months in the year, and advised people to wear warmer clothes than they would in spring and summer.
“I would advise everyone in the country to buy a hat, jacket and a pair of gloves in preparation for this sudden change in climate,” he said. “These items of clothing can be purchased in any good clothes shop, and will protect you from the cold air. If you don’t have any form of heating in your home, I’d advise you to get some quick. Note: you cannot buy jumpers or jackets for houses, as they don’t make them that size.”
Along with the cold, darkness is also expected, with light dissipating earlier in the evening than in previous months.
“Motorists will have to turn their lights on to drive in the dark,” Byrne explained, demonstrating with a torch and making ‘vroom vroom’ noises while steering an imaginary wheel. “It could also rain in the dark too, so make sure your car has windscreen wipers,” he added, now moving his head side-to-side.
The winter weather is expected to last right up to January, and even Febuary, before getting slightly warmer in time for spring, which is a whole other ball game altogether.
Straight off the back of Storm Ali the Met Office has now officially named the second storm of the season.
Storm Bronagh is set to hit parts of the British Isles with strong winds and heavy rain of upto 100mm as we go through this evening and into Friday.

Storm Bronagh brings potential for very strong winds on Thursday evening and overnight into Friday morning.

- Road, rail, air and ferry services may be affected, with longer journey times and cancellations possible
- Some roads and bridges may close
- Power cuts may occur, with the potential to affect other services, such as mobile phone coverage
- Injuries and danger to life could occur from large waves and beach material being thrown onto sea fronts, coastal roads and properties
The warning area, now associated with Storm Bronagh, has been extended to cover more of northern England. The likelihood of medium impacts has also been increased.

An area of strong winds is likely to develop across parts of Wales and southwest England during Thursday evening before spreading further eastwards across England. The strongest winds are then expected to clear into the North Sea early on Friday. Most likely is that we will see gusts of 45-50 mph in a few spots inland as well as more widely around exposed coasts. However, there is a small chance that stronger winds will develop in some areas with 60-65 mph gusts possible, particularly overnight into Friday across eastern England. The strong winds will accompanied by short-lived outbreaks of very heavy rain in places.
This week is set to go from relatively hot for some of us to wet and extremely windy.
First the UK will feel the effects as EX Hurricane Helene crosses our shores. She will begin to be felt this evening and for much of tomorrow particularly in the West.
As the week goes on we see a succession of strong Low pressure systems flirt with the country.
Generally the worst of these winds will be for Northern Ireland, Northern England and Scotland however on Sunday the current GFS paints a potentially deadly picture.
The most severe storm in some time could hit the UK with extremely strong Hurricane force winds of up to 110MPH!
Currently confidence is low on a mega storm hitting for the end of the weekend but it something we will be monitoring very closely in the coming days.
While many are focusing on the dangerous hurricane Florence, there is another interesting and potentially dangerous tropical system in the Atlantic.
The Category 1 hurricane Helene is heading towards Europe early next week.
Helene is currently still in the central Atlantic, but is moving towards the Azores and it is a beast!
Current satelite images show Helene to be a well defined hurricane with strong winds which could reach in excess of 100MPH.
Helene will eventually become a post-tropical storm and accelerate towards western Europe. It is possible the ex-hurricane Helene will be pushed into British isles and Ireland on Monday and bring gale force winds and torrential rainfall with potentially dangerous conditions.
Hurricane Florence is bearing down on America’s East coast and the images look stunning.
The Hurricane is expected to cause severe damage and a risk to peoples lives as we go through Thursday into Saturday.
Wind speeds could be as high as 150MPH along with a severe storm surge and monumental rainfall.
Some experts predict it could be the costliest Hurricane ever to hit the U.S!
