Maybe this is all a giant prank by the government and MSM? Set these people up to make them believe they have the future of the world in their hands, that their scientific knowledge and grasp makes Newton appear a dunce, then we all secretly snigger and snicker behind our hands as, in all seriousness, they get up on stage and talk absolute bollocks.
That set up my post very nicely, cheers (I'm about to forecast).
Joe Bastardi's latest forecast
is for a cold start but then a "warm up" over Britain and Scandinavia with the severe cold in Central and Southern Europe. That suggests to me for a lot of the winter we'll have an anti-cyclonic Euro high sat over UK bringing mild air to the north of Europe and grey clouds here with the bitter cold going south and east of us, to Greece, Italy, Germany, Balkans and France.
In the image below I'm extrapolating on the basis of the model not illustrating what JB said, although I'm not sure by what other mechanism the outcome shown can be achieved.
Edit: I suppose it might depend which direction the high comes from - if it's a Scandinavian high diving SW they'll be more chance of snow for southern England than if it's an Azores high going NE.
