The weather prospects for the week ahead will elicit howls of derision from my programme editor. This is not because of any factual or scientific errors (perish the thought) but because he regards the term "sunshine & showers" as the ultimate cop out.

The current conditions are perfect for such perceived cop-outery. Low pressure is in charge, it's all looking quite unstable, there will be sun but there will also be rain at times.

I'm left with no choice; sunshine & showers for the next few days.

Sorry boss.
