Sodden music festivals, campsites looking like outdoor swimming pools, soggy Wimbledon, Farmers crops ruined and who can forget the downpour during the Queen’s Jubilee celebration.
At last we’ve found the reason as to why our summertime has been a complete washout… The Jetstream!
The northern hemisphere jet stream has, according to weather experts, been working a little ‘wonky’ (there’s probably a rather good technical term that they used but I think ‘wonky’ just fits the bill perfectly) these last few months.
Normally, our jet stream flows past north of the UK bringing lovely warm weather up from the south of Europe. But this year, its flowing well below par, over the top of France which means it’s allowing cooler and wetter weather to bombard us senseless.
Yet, just when you think our summer is doomed, weather boffins have stated that the jet stream is moving back into its normal, preferred, position above the north of the UK.
It looks like Mother Nature has heeded our SOS (Save Our Summer) call and the organisers of the London Olympics will be crossing their fingers (and everything else) that the jet stream behaves itself again…
