    Here in the British Isles we are suffering a tropical heat wave as we are battered by storm after storm after storm from the North Atlantic. Waves crashing onto the coast are up to seven meters and occasionally even ten meters high. Ruining the sea defences. Wide spread flooding. All the rivers are bursting their banks. But soon by the end of this week we are expecting a slight ridge of high pressure to form which if it gets established will send temperatures plunging down below zero.
