Hurrah for global warming !

A misty, snowy Ben Nevis. That white stuff is snow, which requires cold air to be there. As opposed to the hot air so beloved of the sky is falling brigade of fuckwits.

I wish. Just spent a traditional Bank Holiday Weekend freezing and wet. The UK Met Office long range forecast for summer 2007 is hot and dry;

Forecast for Summer 2007


There continues to be a high probability (at least 70%) that mean summer temperatures will be above the 1971-2000 long-term average over much of western Europe including the UK. Indications for this year suggest the odds for a particularly hot summer, similar to those experienced in 2003 and 2006 across the UK, are around 1 in 8.


Signals for summer rainfall continue to be weak with no significant indications, at this stage, of either a particularly dry or a particularly wet summer. However, the forecasts slightly favour drier than average conditions across many parts of western Europe, including southern areas of the UK.

Ha, hahahaha. Maybe summer don't include May.
The snappy phrases;
'particularly hot summer' and 'drier than average conditions across many parts of western Europe' are just brilliant. Are our National weather forecasters inaccurate tossers, or are they simply following the global warming means hotter weather mantra ?
Maybe I will have to eat humble pie if we do (please, please, please let it happen) have a long dry hot summer. Bring back the summer of '76.
