This year started of an absolute cracker of a summer! Remeber  Wimbledon? It was hot, it was sunny, and they only had to shut the roof during a thunderstorm, as a result of the good weather. Now its the end of August and there has hardly been a day over 20C (in scotland at least) for the entire month, and the rain has been relentless.

How did the long range forecasters get it so wrong? Well there are rumours appearing that there is anothe El nino starting in the Pacific, perhaps this is why our summer seemed to come to a halt all of a sudden. Come back soon for further explanation and ideas.
