These are exciting times for weather forecast aficionados like me.

I was thrilled to add ‘the beast from the east’ to my bulging lexicon recently, but this has now been eclipsed by the phenomenally exciting ‘snow bomb’ which was anticipated to explode over south Wales.

While continuing to wait impatiently for ‘the pest from the west’ and the ‘force from the north,’ I must content myself with the intriguing words of forecaster Peter Gibbs.

He assured viewers to the BBC news channel there would be ‘no more snow from the skies.’

Infuriatingly, he did not give any clues as to where it would be coming from.

Fear not, I will maintain my vigil because the truth is out there somewhere.
