As you know, I have been seeking Admiral Fitzroy's expert opinion on the weather on a weekly basis for this blog.
Of course I mean the Admiral Fitzroy weatherglass which sits on my desk.
I must point out that this exercise is for the purpose of this blog only - for my other weather reporting duties I rely on more established sources like the Met Office and established long-range forecasters.
However, Admiral Fitzroy has so far nailed a big freeze and a week of storms.
So what has he in store for this week?
Bad news I am afraid, if you are averse to the snow.
Big crystals at the bottom of the liquid with a couple on top:
Snow in winter months, then heavy air or frost.
Coincidentally, it is feeling a bit nippy.
