More weather will follow today's weather according to a warning from Met Office forecasters.
'Normal conditions up there,' said a spokeswoman, 'will result in more weather arriving when the current spell of weather is over. It's not that difficult with modern technology predicting when the weather following the current spell of weather will reach us and so on.'
The Met Office claims to have a hundred per cent accuracy record of predicting that more weather will follow weather.
But Walsall pensioner Albert Rowe (87) who has an impressive record of monitoring the weather on the evidence of twinges from rheumatism in his legs, said the Met Office might soon be caught out.
'I'm predicting,' said Mr Rowe, 'that there's a period of the no weather out in the Atlantic and when it doesn't arrive, so to speak, I'm warning there'll be some amber to red faces in the Met Office.'
