The Express and the Daily Star today lead with the revelation that winter, which normally lasts three months and is often cold, may this year last three months and be cold...
The Express story even adds "the northern half of the UK will become a lot colder for a time with the risk of snow". Who knew.
The public have certainly reacted with shock to this news.
Twitter user Rob Jones asked: "How will the other seasons feel about this? Soon they'll all want to last three months."
His concerns were echoed by Ian Yeomans who tweeted: "Three months, that's a quarter of a year... what about the other 3 seasons, will there be room for them too?"
Only time will tell. Or a calendar and a basic grasp of the seasons.
