The misery and darkness surrounding the summer weather might soon be a thing of the past, warmer and drier weather is on its way.
For months now the UK has suffered through day after day of countless rainfall and the occasional bit of sunshine. It has been the wettest April through to June weather on record, and it certainly has been showing. Earlier in the month flood warnings were sent out to 171 locations and it saw no sign of letting up any time soon.
There were some factors into the weather being as it has been and that is by the moisture from the Atlantic keeping the UK cooler and wetter than it normally is. Weather continuing into this month saw England and Wales have been experiencing above average rainfall. The cause for this weather is all down to jet streams which circle the globe and travel to certain areas. There are four different streams that travel around the globe.
Normally the streams move over to the South which causes colder weather for the North, but now as the streams are heading over to the North it is going to mean a more consistent pattern of weather. As a result we will get to see a drastic change in weather throughout the North-Westerly parts of the country and the UK can finally start believing that it is indeed summer.
