However, he then realised the weather wouldn’t be as “extreme” as suggested by the broadcaster, but that it would be unseasonably warm for February.
Speaking out on his initial worries, Jeremy said: “The BBC’s early evening weather bulletin on Wednesday showed a menacing, blood red cloud over the whole of Europe. Along with a caption saying, ‘Extreme Heat’.
“Naturally, I was alarmed by this and put down my phone for a moment so I could get a handle on what disaster-movie terrors were coming our way.
“It turned out that, over the next few days, we could expect to see clear skies and temperatures of around 12 degrees. Which didn’t sound very ‘extreme’ to me. I’d call it: ‘Lovely weather for the time of year’.”
The former BBC presenter then jibed in his column for The Sun: “But I guess that wouldn’t sit well in the BBC plan to mention climate change in every single show.”
