Barbecue Summer? Maybe not.

The Met Office is forecasting that August will continue with the same wet and windy weather we’ve seen in July. And the poor old forecasters are being criticised – and worse there are allegations that they have been ‘got at by tourism chiefs’ who apparently pressurised them to publicise the good summer ahead way back in April in a bid to encourage holidaying at home. Conspiracy theories abound!
So will this mean a mad dash for overseas sunshine this autumn or will the credit crunch prevail? There is a chink of sunlight however with a highly provisional suggestion that late August might see some better weather. So keep the tents packed until then I say.
