    Is it possible that the Government encouraged the Met Office to give a sunny outlook for the summer in order to boost tourism revenue and thus the UK's economy?

    It's seems a bit far-fetched, but not completely impossible.

    Oh, sorry! :o:

    However, I think you could gain a sort-of answer to your question from this:

    Michael Fish. I'll say no more.

    Apparently it's the Met Office's fault for saying there's a 65% chance of it being a hot summer.

    you do know trying to read what the weather is going to do is very very hard, and they do get it wrong

    they can only really look 5 days onwards and still get it wrong

    Maybe they were right.

    The thing about the met and the weather is that they never guarantee anything - nor do they say that they are infallible.

    There is never a question of them being wrong as they never put themselves in the position, since their inception, to be nothing more than a likely predictions do hickey....(technical term - no worth looking up :ninja: )

    There is no right and there is no wrong - just things likely to happen based on past events and current meteorological trends.

    Honestly, anyone who chatters insistently about weather should get a life - after 20 years on this planet and living in this country I think I know to be prepared for anything...all the time.
