    Put that on hold. I had a look on the Met Office website and found this:-

    “Winter forecast?
    28 October 2010
    Following public research, the Met Office no longer issues long-range forecasts for the general public; instead we provide a monthly outlook on our website.
    Despite this, you may have seen some reports in the media on Thursday, suggesting the Met Office has produced a forecast for the coming winter.
    These media reports have based their interpretation for the coming winter on probability maps on our website. However, they have been selective about the information they have used and you should not take these interpretations as a guide to the coming winter. Instead we would recommend using our monthly outlook and short range forecasts. “
