Peter Odemwingie has issued a severe weather warning as he forecasts a flurry of goals this winter.
The West Brom striker was nicknamed 'Peter Snow' during his time with Russian giants Lokomotiv Moscow due to his amazing record in winter conditions.
And now the 29-year-old Nigerian international is on a mission to score an avalanche of goals for the Baggies in an attempt to lift them out of their current slump.
Roberto Di Matteo's men are now without a victory in five games and sit 16th in the Premier League - just two points off the relegation zone.
The Tashkent born player, a £2million summer signing said: "I'm not at all bothered if it starts snowing. I'm used to it, remember I played in Russia for a few years!
"I remember when it used to snow in Belgium, I had a friend who called me 'Peter Snow' because I had some good games in those conditions.
"There's a saying in Russia, they say they're not scared of the cold in the north - they just dress well. So I'm the same, I don't like the cold - and I have my big sweater on already.
"Cold is cold. I don't feel more comfortable than anyone else in the cold.
"You just have to play, maybe you will hope that there are players who are more comfortable in that weather, that's all you can hope for.
"You'll know how cold I am if I'm wearing gloves.
"But it's about character now, we had a few meetings this week and how we react is what's important.
"We had a good start to the season and teams are more defensive against us now, so it's harder to open them up. It's not by mistake that we did that in early games."
