I take every opportunity possible to ridicule the Daily Express for their sensationalist front page weather forecasts.
So imagine my horror when I read this article on a local news website, quoting James Winfield, with the headline of:
It stems from me posting a piece of model output which I thought I made clear was exceptionally unlikely, and it was to show the range of model outputs and why weather forecasting isn’t that easy.
In hindsight I shouldn’t have posted it – I see why it was misleading and it totally wasn’t my intention.
So I have been “Daily Expressed” and of course taken a fair slagging off from a few people, which is guess is to be expected on the internet. However I have also had some support from my regular readers which is heartening.
And they do say that all publicity is good publicity. I have gone from 240 followers to 324 in a day. I will hopefully see the funny side soon.
I guess this is my 15 minutes of fame? I don’t like it!
