I frequently look at the Met Office forecasts on t'web ( https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/forecast/ ) and find that over the last few years they have improved beyond recognition and are now remarkably accurate.

Ah, but you have to realise that the red top papers hate this cold snap because it comes from Europe and we can't control it.

I think you misunderstand the essential purpose of this forum.
