Sorry, but a night time temperature of just below freezing, in January, is not a newsworthy event.

The fact that the actual weather did not accurately match what was forecast by the Met Office. That is not news either.

I am not enjoying all this over the top scaremongering - and then inflation of dire warnings - 36 hours ago, Friday was supposed to be a white blizzard all day, and now, according to one forecast, we might get a few flakes at 6pm, and then rain.

Cry wolf far too many times over the past fortnight.

The BBC reports clearly compete for news time, not accuracy.

Bring back Daniel Corbett from NZ would be one quick fix, but given the role that weather and forecast plays in terms of people's planning and business generally, I think we need an inquiry headed by John Kettley, Brian Cant and Dame Shirley Bassey.
