And the weather forecast is
Meteorologists predict that this month there will be temperatures that could, on occasions, beat the Mediterranean average for June of 80F or 26C.
This will be especially true for the North, which is expected to enjoy a month of warm weather. Southerners will have to dodge the occasional thunderstorm.
However, July and August will be cooler and wetter for everyone.
A Met Office spokesman said June would be "as good as it's going to get and we're not expecting it to get any hotter"....
Met Office: Summer 2008 forecast
There is a slightly enhanced chance of more frequent cloudy and cool spells compared to recent summers prior to 2007. Nevertheless, mean temperatures are more likely to be above the 1971-2000 average.
Our forecasting methods continue to suggest that rainfall for the summer as a whole is more likely to be either near, or above average.
I think provide it doesn't snow they will be able to claim they got it right. Tricky thing forecasting the weather for this month - so much easier to forecast the climate in ten years time.....
