Is 2010 to be a real “Swimming Pool summer”.
“Swimming Pool Summer” y0u say, This has been forecast by Positive Weather Solutions, who last summer predicted a wash-out, and have consistently out-forecast the Met Office over the last two years with a continuous accurate long-term predictions.
The prediction says average temperatures in June, July and August are on course to beat those of 1976, “The Only Proper Summer” and the hottest summer yet when temperatures exceeded 89.6f (32c) for 15 days from late June to early July.
This year a two-week spell at the start of August is expected to be hotter than the UK’s highest ever temperature, the 38.5c (101.3f) recorded at Brogdale, near Faversham, Kent, on August 10, 2003.
Positive Weather Solutions have said summer 2010 will break records as El Nino, which warms the Pacific Ocean, combines with the effects of the Atlantic jet stream weather pattern and the Azores high pressure region. Senior forecaster Jonathan Powell said: ‘There will be stifling temperatures, making it possibly the warmest UK summer on record and placing it at least in the top three warmest summers recorded.
‘ He then went on to predict ‘dry spells with pleasant sunshine’ and said the best time to book a holiday would probably be mid-July. Mr Powell also said: ‘A very warm summer has been on the cards for some years, and the Met Office believed it was likely to happen last year – and people should be able to find a good deal on one after last year’s Met Office forecast.’
The Positive Weather Solutions forecast is:
JUNE: Starts with fine weather. Rain mid-month but temperatures warm to very warm. Changeable later in month with fine conditions although some heavy rain to finish.
JULY: Starts unsettled with some rain, then dry through mid-month with warm to very warm temperatures, lots of sunshine and light breeze. Humid towards end of the month with thunderstorms and possible flash floods.
AUGUST: Thunderstorms quickly replaced by unbroken sunshine which may cause record temperatures. Warm mid-month but broken up by unsettled periods. Good weather towards month end before showery, cooler conditions move in.
