Long range forecasts: Roger Harrabin investigates

Paul Hudson | 13:32 UK time, Saturday, 16 January 2010

In my previous blog, 'A frozen Britain turns the heat up on the Met Office', I discussed whether or not the prolonged cold spell of weather could have been forecast better by the Met office.

I also asked if there was a possibility that after such a long run of warmer than average years, could it be that the Hadley supercomputer had developed a warm bias. This question, in particular, has created much interest.

My colleague Roger Harrabin has spent the last few days investigating these issues, and you can read his article, 'Met Office longer-term forecasts criticised', by clicking here
