Must be above freezing now at 9.45am in North Yorkshire as the icicles on the gutterings are now starting to drip. Sun is shining and mainly blue skies.

The BBC weather site is almost always way off target. The Met office website I find is much more reliable. For today, for here, the BBC says "light snow, max temp 0c". It's actually thawing a bit here, the thermometer in the garden says it's +2c and as of yet, no snow.

The BBC predicted moderate snow here yesterday and there was none at all. They also prodicted an easterly wind with gusts of up to 30mph, and it was still all day. The BBC would be better off with a bit of sea weed.

It's 5c here today, positively tropical! Actually been able to get the car off the drive as the ice has turned to slush.

GB I thought the BBC got their forecast from the Met Office? Perhaps not then?

Anyway, I now have 4 forecasts for next Wednesday, Accuwether and Google say cloud/sun, BBC & Met say light snow.

And as per Dicanio's 'forecast" i bet they all change their minds a couple of times between then and now.
