Wave Is Over
THE weather is in stark
contrast to March's mini-heat wave; the UK has returned to its
normal wintery weather. The freak weather we all enjoyed was not
truly the start of the spring in metrological terms; even though
it was the Vernal Equinox, or Start of Spring, as calculated via
the shape of the Earth's orbit. It is in fact late April when
Spring really sets in the UK. Interestingly it is statistically
more likely to snow at Easter than Christmas, due to water
temperatures in the sea being colder. It takes longer for water
to heat up, and that means we are more likely to have colder
weather at the start of the year than at the end of it! But
don't rush out to the bookies to place a bet and you don't need
to start singing:- "I'm dreaming of a white Easter"
just yet as, for many of us, the temperatures will climb
according to forecasters, before Easter Day.
All this leaves many asking,
will we be in for a water shortage later in the year, if the
mini heat wave was sign of things to come!
Email you views to us and let
us know what you think will happen. Will you are readers be
better at long term prediction than the Met Office?
