Over the weekend a feature ran in the Western Morning News, exploring the work of the Met Office from the perspective of the Met Office Cheif Meteorologist. This story was reported in the Daily Telegraph and the Daily Mail, which was followed by some very positive comments by readers about the role of the Met Office.
Yesterday and today there has been widespread media coverage of the potential for increasing cold across the UK bringing outbreaks of snow. Contrary to the rather alarmist headline on the Daily Express on Monday, snow will be mostly confined to northern and eastern parts of the UK during the week, before other parts see an increasing risk of snow over the weekend. Overall it is still to early to give detail of who will see snow and who won’t at the moment and the public are advised to stay up to date with the latest weather forecasts from the Met Office online, on tv and on the radio.
