Will summer 09 be a wet one again?
well the sun is chillaxing this year apparentlyPosted 8 years ago
OK, I’ll make an educated guess about this. Last couple of years we’ve been suffering the effects of La Nina. (low pressure in the eastern pacific) one of the results of this is that it pulls the Jetstream south, and one of the effects of that is that the Icelandic low pressure region fills, and the Azores high pressure region (what makes our summers) moves further south. and the upshot of all that is mild and wet weather. Now, the La Nina weather effect has decreased, hence the colder winter we’ve had, so if everything being normal, we should see a return to more usual summer weather patterns.

Thats very interesting, have you any links to sites.
I was hoping the azores high would be back to normal as we hare in Italy have experienced wet springs (whilst hot and sunny in the UK) then come June we did not have a single drop of rain until the 3rd week in September (When the Mleh guys came to visit!!!!) whilst the UK ws wet!!!Posted 8 years agoIdleJonSubscriber
Due to the short term forecast that I am reducing my working hours to 16 per week as of 30th April, leading to an increase in availability for cycling and surfing and related activities, I would predict the worst, wettest, muddiest, flattest surf summer for a century.Posted 8 years agoalpinMember
the weather here in germany has been spot on for 2-3 weeks. it has rained once and that was continuously on saturday. other than that it has been between 20-27oC.
the UK really does get a battering from the jet stream. rain i can deal with it is the low grey cloud and lack of blue i don’t miss….Posted 8 years ago
