The Daily Express' Endless Nonsense

Recommended Posts

It's like clock work now. Every year the Daily Express comes out with Indian summer drivel, Outrageous Winter Headlines and so on. Surely something should be done, a campaign for fake weather news... something...  I'm all for media freedom but when it comes to scaremongering and blatant disregard for vulnerable people something needs to happen. 

Share your thoughts, laugh at the utter nonsense and marvel at the ineptitude of these so called journalists.

I'm not sure any action would do anything personally. I am all for laughing at them though. THREE MONTHS? I know you're not ruling out an Indian Summer but for three months? The long range forecast is there for guidance not to be splashed around the front-page of national newspapers.

This is probably the face of Nathan Rao when an article goes live 🤑

Yes, utter plonkers but it's not just the Express that is doing it. Plenty of other outlets have latched on to the bandwagon.

The Express is now talking about El Nino now.

God help us. Whenever they post stuff like this the author always makes it seem very extraordinary and makes it seem like it's never happened before. I mean, an El Nino has not been confirmed yet and they are posting stuff like that. Jeez. 

I cannot bring myself to visit the site and screenshot the article.

The Mail is just as bad. 

Unfortunately as we're a weather obsessed nation, extreme weather headlines sell papers.

I'm on a couple of US/international weather/climate sites, forever having to remind foreigners NOT to take these publications seriously!

It's all about MONEY.

They don't want it to be informative. It just needs a scary title and a picture like this.

To grab people's attention and make them want to CLICK.

    • It's been a while now but here's all the winter forecasts I have read/think are worthy of reading...  Our very own/first ever seasonal forecast https://metcast.net/news/winter-2018-19-forecast/  Gavs Weather Vids https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H0cIpgxWRfw The Snow Dreamer aka London and Southeast https://t.co/qw3ZuNf7AT  Are there any that I have missed that you think is a decent read?
    • Does anybody else buy a TV Guide and mark everything they want to watch? I have the TV Guide on my iPhone now but I still like doing it the traditional way. Below is the 2018 cover... 
    • Are you dreaming of a White Christmas or just for the iPhone XS Max? Well, if you're anything like me neither is going to happen 😆  Do you have any traditions (family or otherwise!?) personally I always like to go to the St Peters Brighton Carol Service on Christmas Eve. In fact I like to go to as many events on the lead up to Christmas--I play at some concerts/carol services too.  As for the weather during the Christmas period we'll be looking at that from Saturday (1st December). What are your thoughts/hopes?  
    • Well, model output certainty hasn't been boring for the last few weeks. 12z is currently running and it's snowing the possibility of some snow showers in the east and south east (although I suspect this won't amount to much--famous last words!).  Share your thoughts and opinons on the model output below... 
    • New snow advisory. There will also be an observational map which will be issued for informational purposes only and will be published after any decision making at Metcast/Snow Watch when an advisory is not considered suitable.
