Generally I think the forecasts on BBC Television channels are pretty good.
During the current inclement weather I have come to base a lot of my actions on the Severe Weather Warning pages of the Met Office website.
They consist of four colours:
- Green - Behave as normal
- Yellow - Behave as normal, make sure I am wearing a coat
- Orange - Whatever happens, it's quite likely I will notice the weather
- Red - Eeek. Could be a problem. Don't go to the supermarket, because the locusts will have beaten me to it
Except for today, because I had a day of pre-booked leave, just because we are approaching the end of the holiday year. Use it or lose it!
