Weather Forecast

Well I've just tried to cheer myself up by finding out when the Summer is going to start and as far as I can see its not. Well not in the next two weeks anyway.

Anyone have a crystal ball that can tell me when the good weather is arriving ?

Would you like me to tell you that the weather is going to improve and be absolutely fab on every weekend that you are going out on your RIB?

I'm not sure that the weather forecast is that accurate at the moment so I think my crystal ball is more optimistic!!!

One day a week wouldn't be too bad for T shirts and shorts. But we aren't even getting that at the moment. And we are on the downward slope to Christmas now

August thro late October and even early November big temps, big sunshine, big bbq list of people- i have shifted my mental summer season to these dates thro sheer frustration and season changes in last 5 years when i seem to have had the most luck in getting the wx right :-)

spring thro july is hit and miss depending on gulf stream and what else weather wise is going on up top of the world... oh for that crystal ball..

I've booked my Holidays for August. Seems a bit of a waste going abroad though just as we are getting the better weather.

Next year I think I'll take June or July for a summer holiday then get some ribbing in in August.

I would say July is going to be too hot - then August will be very wet follwed by a nice Sept/October.

All this is down to global warming of course - I found the highest rainfall ever recorded in the UK in a short space of time - 84mm in 90 mins!!! That was in Neath just down the road from me - in July - 1922 - nothing new really!!!

I always used to think June as being a nice warm dry month, not anymore though it seems we are getting all the weather from the north Atlantic, cold strong winds, rain, and who knows when its going to get any better, we need more southerly winds to push this naf weather away but that doesn't seem to be happening yet this year. Global warming huh! where!!??

I have been doing marquees for 20 years this year and I can't remember a June when we did not get soaked or frozen for most of it! July and August are always the best months . September we get rain and gales usually to coincide with Southampton Boat Show . Calm October and November then gales mid December . Jan to Apr we dont work !!

Sorry Tim, think Wimbledon, think Glastonbury these are always in June and always really wet. Never understood why people choose June to get married, every June wedding I've been to, always rains. April/May usually good, just get back from skiing and the weather is better and waiting for our return. June rubbish, July really good until the kids break up from school, then hit and miss until Sept when the kids go back and then lovely again!
