White Britain - check out this photo from space!

No it’s not a time warp photo of Dicken’s time, it’s from the NASA MODIS satellite imager this week. This is like one of those “spot the cow in this photo” images, looking for the UK in a sea of white.

click to enlarge - the outline of the UK is clearly visible right of center - image: NASA

It must be having quite an impact in the UK. According to UK resident and WUWT commenter “borderer”:

Every single newspaper in the UK has published the following satellite image of the UK today – it shows the entire country in glowing white – snow and ice now appears the entire British Isles from John O’ Groats at the Northern tip of Scotland – to Landsend in Cornwall.
Despite this – and we are now in our 25th day of sub zero temperatures – the MET Office put up a spokesman on Newsnight last evening claiming that their forecast for a ‘very mild winter’ had ‘only been a probability!!

In other news, the Met Head gets paid extra even for botched forecasting. Remember the “BBQ summer” forecast?


“Mr. Hirst, you predicted a barbeque summer for 2009 – we don’t remember that – and a mild winter for this winter, which hasn’t happened. Why did you get a massive performance related bonus?

From Watts Up With That? And if you aren't reading this blog, then why not?!
