Where are these headlines. Is the media getting lax or am I not looking hard enough.

 

Major disruptions across the entire UK.

Flights cancelled at all airports - check with your airline before you travel.

AA have advised motorists to take all appropriate precautions and not to travel unless absolutely necessary.

Panic buying at supermarkets already being reported across the country.

"Up to four inches of snow"! Was the forecaster once working for an ISP?Crazy3

@Strat  Well, I suspect your complaint should be directed at the Met Office... as they are the "supplier"...   Ticked_off
