  2. Snow or no snow?

    Alexis Green

    BBC South Today weather presenter

    BBC weather presenter Alexis Green says there is a "great deal of uncertainty" over the chance of snow in the south tomorrow.

    She says: "We have all the ingredients for snow - intense rain, cold air from the north and the right wind direction.

    "But it is less likely along the coast where it will be warmer. More likely for areas north of the M4.

    "The uncertainty is about the track and intensity of the weather system, meaning that confidence is low in the amount and extent of any snow."

  9. Trump 'meltdown' tweet: More of your comments


    Oxford City Council apologised earlier for a blunder that saw it tweet a message describing Trump as being in a meltdown as he dismissed claims Russia had compromising material on him.

    Following news of the apology, Dan Hart on Facebook said: "I should think so too, sullying his otherwise impeccable character."  

    Katherine Newman-Warren added: "If he isn't [in meltdown], then he should be... I'd be surprised it he gets sworn in before he's off to answer questions!"

    But Robert Bedding said: "Yesterday the Russians did everything they could to get Trump elected. Today the same press is saying Russia has a dossier that is going to stop Trump being the new President. I have never seen such tripe and rubbish in all my life. The press should just get over it. Trump won and will be President. Respect democracy."

  16. Oxford City Council sorry for 'Trump in meltdown' tweet

    Oxford City Council has apologised after a tweet from its account described President-elect Donald Trump as "in utter meltdown". 

    It followed Mr Trump's tweets dismissing claims Russia has compromising material on him. A spokesman said the tweet was wrongly sent from the council's account.

    The tweet

    A statement said: "A member of staff mistakenly issued a personal tweet on the council's official twitter feed commenting on the President-elect Donald Trump. 

    "This error was spotted by our internal monitoring and quickly deleted. The city council apologises for any offence it may have caused." 

    The council's tweet, which was up for about 20 minutes, replied to one by Mr Trump, which said: "I HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH RUSSIA - NO DEALS, NO LOANS, NO NOTHING!"
