Sand storm menaces Scottish Highlands
Aviemore braces for unseasonable weather
Those of you up there in the Scottish Highlands who are bracing for the expected -130°C big chill predicted yesterday by the Daily Star would do well to add Bedouin protective headgear to your inclement weather clothing checklist, if the BBC's five-day forecast for Aviemore is correct:
We have no doubt this is all down to global warming, the effects of which have previously been felt in Belfast, Leeds and London. Watch this space for updates on our beloved planet's decline into meteorological anarchy. ®
According to the weather station at the University of York (http://www.amp.york.ac.uk/external/weather/current1.html) it's currently -999C outside, with an atmospheric pressure of 1032mb. Granted, their mast is on top of the Physics building (itself pretty tall) so at ground level it's probably a tad chillier.
What I *do* know, however, is that -999C or not, it's bloody nithering out there!
Flames, 'cos it's cold, dammit!
Here is the boring weather (forecast)
Chuck Norris were here he would know what to do!
