Predictions from PWS (Positive Weather Solutions) show that this summer will be a record breaker. They are predicting that the warm currents in the Pacific with the effects of the jet stream weather pattern of the Atlantic and the Azores high pressure region will create the hottest summer since 1976.
PWS reckon that the hottest day will come in a two-week heat wave which is set for the beginning of August (might be a good time to take off work!).
So it seems us Brits could be in for a gorgeous summer this year and our bikinis may not need to jet set half way across the world to see a bit of sun!
Senior Forecaster at PWS, Jonathan Powell says that this summers temperatures will be stifling, which could possibly make it the hottest summer on record.
PWS Forecasters also predicted the big freeze which has just passed as well as a wash out summer in 2009, so let's see if they are going to be right three times in a row for the forth coming summer.
It has been said that with these predictions, overseas holidays could see a drop in sales. But a spokeswoman from Abta doesn't think that the forecast will have too big a impact on sales as you get much more of a weather guarantee overseas, and sometimes you just need to get away to gain perspective on your life.
Would you cancel your summer holiday abroad on the basis of a predicted summer heat wave?
