Up to 2009 we had really hot dry summers. Then suddenly God decided once again he didn’t like the way people in this country were living such sinful lives that he decide to punish us by filling the summer months with rain.
Well that’s what opponents of same sex marriage said anyway. What really happened is the Atlantic Ocean warmed up, possibly due to climate change or maybe just something that happens from time to time.
A group of meteorologist recently ( May 2013) met in Exeter and decided that the Atlantic was going through a 20 year warming cycle. This warming has affected the Jet Stream, bringing it further south which produces loads of rain brought in by the persistent South West winds that blow over the UK. If this is true then the next sunny summer we will have here in the UK will be in 2030 or there abouts. I will be 87 by then, I could even miss it.
But I have set this post to re-appear in 2016, 2021, 2026 and 2031 so we can check on the accuracy of the Met Offices prediction.
