Wicklow Weather rubbish Indo claims of “Big freeze”

Aughrim based Wicklow Weather has this morning rubbished claims by the Irish Independent that a big freeze is on the way, Derek McAlister who runs the Facebook page said this morning.

“Didn’t really want to comment on yesterdays Irish Indo article on this winter but they have gone one better this morning.

We cannot say for certain what winter will bring in the coming weeks and months but what is certain is these articles are designed to do nothing more than sell newspapers with the shock and awe headlines.

James Madden of Exacta Weather predicted “record” cold winters in 2011, 2012, 2013…. last month we were due widespread blizzards according to him.

Meteorology is by no means an exact science but please take these headlines with one very large pinch of salt. If he is correct its a case of throwing darts at the dartboard….at some stage you are bound to hit the bullseye.”

Wicklow Weather has now over 10.000 followers and is one of the most accurate weather forecasters in the country.
