Presumably the weather forecasters get their data from the same satellites and weather stations? Yet the forecast for Friday morning varies from 28% chance of rain BBC – to 80% METO. Temps about the same 5/6C. These predictions are for Sandford. Both predict high winds although the METO are 30-40mph whilst BBC is around 20mph. So we can forget the hyperbole here – it is winter folks, but nothing unusual – no Arctic blast or dusting off the toboggans at the moment.
