“New Little Ice Age’ extreme weather is taking over.”
A “nightmare.” “The weather has affected crops immensely.”
Britain is facing its “worst ever” summer with cold wet weather ruining family holidays and blighting the Olympics, forecasters warned last night.
August is set to be a washout following a miserable July and the wettest June and April since records began – meaning summer is effectively over.
Parts of the Midlands and northern Britain are bracing for six inches of rain – more than two months’ worth – in the 72 hours to tomorrow night.
Forecasters MeteoGroup last night described this summer as “the worst since records began”.
“This is as bad a summer as we can get in this country,” said forecaster Paul Knightley
Jonathan Powell, forecaster for Vantage Weather Services echoed those sentiments, warning that, “(August is) already set to be in the top five wettest on record.”
“New Little Ice Age extreme weather is taking over.”
Meanwhile, over at WeatherAction.com, Piers Corbyn expects “a July of dramatic contrasts and likely record-level extremes,” and warns that “New Little Ice Age extreme weather is taking over.”
Corbyn thinks “off-scale rain, thunder-floods, giant hail, gales & tornado damage” are likely in NW Europe, while Eastern Europe can expect record or near record heat wave with forest fires likely.
The weather is also expected to affect food supplies.
Fruit farmers in the Tonbridge area this week warned that the “nightmarish” summer weather could reduce this year’s apple crop by half.
And cherries are likely to be even worse hit, according to Golden Green farmer Mike Hibbs, who said a dry spring followed by weeks of cold, wind and rain had left him with nothing to harvest from five acres of orchards.
Describing the situation as a “nightmare,” Hibbs said: “The weather has affected crops immensely. This is the worst season we’ve ever known.”
