'Summer weather is looking chaotic', says expert who predicts a mixed bag to come
10.08.2023 - 15:53
It's the British way of summer every year where we obsess about how hot the sun will shine and if rain is on the cards, and it seems 2023 is no different - although an expert has claimed that we have a "new summer month" emerging. Most of us feel like we've had all four seasons in a very small space of time, with the hottest June on record, followed by an incredibly wet and cooler July. We want to know if there's light at the end of the tunnel for staycationers hoping to catch some rays at their local BBQ? Senior meteorologist at British Weather Services, Jim Dale explains that what happened in June and July is called a "levelling up exercise" and that it's natures way.
He said: "It came in two dollops - dry and hot, then cool and wet, but now we've reached August, we're in for a real mix of the two. "I would expect us to see further rain and showers at intervals but also gorgeous days reaching the high 20s." Last summer's extreme summer temperatures were a rarity, Jim explained, and not something on the cards often. "We're locked in for a mixed bag for the next fortnight and I don't see that changing.
"We almost certainly won't see last year's summer this year - and it's not expected every year either.That was a very hot plume that came out of Africa. "Other parts of the world are eating that up nicely - they're reaching their absolute limits at the moment." Today, parts of Spain climbed to an expected 40 degree heat, with Turkey and Cyprus reaching higher than this. Wildfires are spreading in Portugal and on the opposite side of the world in Hawaii, where lives have been lost.
