Revealed?? Was it supposed to be a secret????

"But while he warned of the slight potential for a nationwide blizzard on Friday"

Slight? The BBC weather man has been wetting his knickers about the warm front meeting the cold and a total national white-out on Friday !!!!!!!!!!!!!

However, I agree with Mr Defty - let's not get too excited about this or all the schools in the county will be closed before the fall of a single snowflake...........
