There’s been a lot of talk lately in the media that Britain will see a 3 month heatwave that will result in the hottest summer for 100 years.
We looked at the long range forecasts that are available and unfortunately there is no truth to this.
Yes the summer could see temperatures of over 30C at times, but this is not unusual to see those kinds of temperatures during the summer months.
The Met Office expect that during June “temperatures will often be around or above average, but locally feeling warm and pleasant in the drier and brighter periods”.
With British summers also comes the risk of rain and thunderstorms which could be a feature to this years weather.
The Met Office long range forecast also said: “Bands of rain or showers may spread in, perhaps most likely into southern and western parts, interspersed by drier and brighter periods”.
