A lovely, fresh 17C here today. Miles better than the heat of yesterday. Roll on autumn proper! 

There aren't many more cringeworthy things in life than local radio discussing the weather! I have to turn it off in the car to avoid crashing out of anger and embarrassment.

i dont live in the UK

Its been a pretty sunny May here as Weatherguru pointed out. We havent had below average sunshine since February.

This year has been very close to average sunshine-wise up until now.  May seriously looks like it could be the dullest on record based on the current forecast.

The Weather Channel seems to be in agreement with the forecasters over at Accuweather.

 

"Britain to face lack of heat this summer due to North Atlantic weather phenomenon"

I'm just guessing but I think we will have yet another very poor summer here.  Guesstimated average highs and sun hours for my location. Obligatory well below normal sunshine, especially August.

Jun: 20c, 170 hrs

Jul: 22c, 170 hrs

Aug: 21c, 150 hrs

"According to long-range forecasts, the UK is set for a series of tepid and unsettled conditions throughout the coming summer months"

 

What a load of freshly dropped tosh that is, id certainly take their 'summery' with a pinch of what they put on fries.

Scaremongering springs to mind.  A lot of the long range are already pointing to warm and dry conditions.

So is the Low pressure and rain this week a blip in a continued pattern of High pressure around the Uk? Hopefully. An interesting fact from May 1976 is that the Uk had above average rainfall. So hopefully a sunny and warm June to come. Maybe something special like this from my personal June favourite-

26-ish by day and I'm guessing around 16-17c nights? I'll never understand how people look forward to sweating from dawn until dusk.

That is the perfect summer day.

It's been a long time since we've had a summer that had above average sun.  2014 just about managed it, and 2005 was the last before that!
