UK ADVANCE WARNINGS OF SEVERE WEATHER

ADVANCE WARNING OF SEVERE WEATHER

Here is an ADVANCED WARNING of Heavy Snow affecting Scotland, Northern Ireland, England and Wales.
Issued by the Met Office at 10:01 on Friday, 24 December 2004.
Forecasters at the Met Office continue to predict snow for most northern and western parts of the UK over the Christmas period.
Rain is expected to turn to snow across much of Scotland during Christmas Eve afternoon, followed by heavy snow showers. These snow showers will extend further south into parts of Northern Ireland, northwest England, and Wales by Christmas Eve evening to give significant accumulations of snow in places overnight especially over higher ground.
On Christmas Day there’ll be further snow showers, chiefly across north and west Scotland, northern parts of Northern Ireland, west Wales and also northwest England, leading to accumulations of more than 10cm in places to give dangerous driving conditions. Smaller amounts of snow are likely to penetrate further south and east into parts of the Midlands and southern England.
Strengthening winds will bring blizzard conditions to some parts of western Scotland and Northern Ireland on Christmas Eve night.
On Boxing Day, there’ll be further snow showers chiefly across northern Scotland, and both eastern and western coastal counties of Britain, although these will gradually die away during the day.
For enquiries regarding this warning - please contact your regional Met Office.
Transmitted by the Met Office at 10:01 on Friday 24 December

A Very Merry White Xmas and a New Year with plenty of fish have a great one EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I tell you this is a wind-up about the snow, we may get some ash from the steelworks, but we know the difference dont we!
They are trying to get us to arrange to hibernate, so that they can come & fish our "hot spots" (where are they)?
Play along with them until we think of a cunning plan, maybe dump a load of snow on the M4 at Cardiff Gate to stop them coming west, keep pumping the blacks for an all out assault on OUR cod on 9th!

I just went out to the jeep to fetch something in, & I soaked by this "snow", which odourless, colourless, & running down the gutter about 4" deep! I tried to build a snowman out of it, but with little success, I think its PRETENDING to be torrential rain myself, but I could be wrong (says he waving his arms a la Dereck Brockway (luvvy) BBC Wales weatherman).

I am absolutely cream crackered after shovelling the snow from my garden path! hahahaha. There is no doubt about it, when it comes to forecasting the weather you are WSF's answer to Micheal Fish!
Have a great Xmas & good luck with the new plans for 2005, Merry Christmas EVERYBODY!!!!!!
