Forecaster predicts scorching temperatures of 99 degrees in BBC weather fail

Ninety-nine degrees? That’s a bit hot for us now.

TECHNICAL BOO-BOOS have often brought people to boiling point, but this is another thing altogether.

Watch the dismay creeping over her face as she clocks the mistake and hastes to cover the screen.


Fortunately she and the hosts are excellent sports, and had a good joke about it all.

That was entirely my fault. I clicked my clicker twice and it that came up.
Do you know, it’s going to be boiling in Town Name!
I know, 99! Ding dong.

Oh, how we laughed.
