The MET Office start predicting a "Barbeque Summer" you know it's time to start stocking up on tinned goods, raincoats and wellies.

A storm yesterday.

Long range forcasting is a tricky skill, needing vast modelling programmes, expertise and years of knowledge. I have none of these, but I do understand basic psychology.

Surely it would be better to predict a miserable summer every year, then when you are inevitably right you look clever. If you are wrong no-one cares as they are all enjoying the hot weather.

Think on chaps.
