UK: Odds On For A BBQ Summer Say Met Office

After back-to-back wash-out summers I'll believe it when I see it, but Chief meteorologist with the Met Office Ewen McCallum says that we are "odds on for a barbecue summer" this year.

"After two disappointingly wet summers, the signs are much more promising this year. We can expect times when temperatures will be above 30°C - something we hardly saw at all last year," he adds.

Meanwhile the The Department of Health are launching a Heatwave Plan, with tips for staying cool during a hot spell.

My favourite UK weather website, Metcheck, is showing very little rain in the forecast for the next fortnight, with daytime highs in the mid-20's.

Don't these people know that Wimbledon is coming up?
