You sure it's not because of Nibiru?

And of course, the stupidest thing about all this lousy weather, is that we have hosepipe bans in force, because some bright spark decided we are in a drought!
Mind you, I once saw a snowfall here in London in early June, so nothing would surprise me any more.

Happy to see someone from the UK awake also at this time


How the hell can we be in a drought when we have had the wettest April and May on record? Unless they are storing the water in underground bunkers?

Snowfall in June really when?

Welcome to the unpredictability that is UK weather.


At this rate I'll be wearing wellies in the summer, and t-shirt & flip flops in the winter...

The summer after the 1991 Mt. Pinatubo eruption was COLD in the US northeast. Very bad if your trying to feed billions. Cold means dry too.

Many people scoffed when I wrote the following thread earlier in May

I wonder how many are scoffing at it now

Well, aquifers are underground storage tanks of a sort. So, yes.

You ARE in a drought. A very prolonged one, actually. Well over a year by some estimates. It takes more than a month of heavy rain storm or snow to replenish aquifers. That takes a very long time. Months and months of heavy rain, maybe even more.

Thought I'd chime in here to try and explain why there is "snow" in May.

First off, if there is ANY snow, it'll be reserved for the higher ground, roughly above 600m. Visit Cairngorm Webcam to view snowfall. If any falls to lower levels i.e. towns, it will be VERY short lived. Snow can fall when the air temp is between 5-10oC because of evaporative cooling. The reason we are still experiencing occasional sporadic bursts of snow is because of the cold polar maritime air that we are under. The warmer air is being held over France and Spain at present. That will change though.

The hail is pretty easy to explain. With very cold upper air (around -30oC at 17,000ft) and the warmer air at ground level, you get steep lapse rates and sheer, this creates Cumulonimbus clouds (thunderclouds), which in turn produce hail and the odd tornado. This is weather we usually get in April (April Showers).

What we are experiencing is "normal" in the grand scheme of things, the only abnormality really is the delay in the shifting of the weather pattern. Trust me when i say this isn't caused by Nibiru, Plant X, 2012 or HARPP.

The wind of late has been predominantly a N or NW'ly, for the warmer weather to hit our shores we ideally need a S, SW, ESE wind.

Ah come on guys, I thought the Queen likes it cold? If her majesty wants it chilly...she turns on HAARP and makes it chilly....can't put old people in too much heat ya know they already look like rasins.

Still, odd weather for sure regardless of the reason.....or the season.

i suggest wool socks..thats what I would do

Ive seen snow on the south coast, in june 1987. I remember it clearly, as the weather had been lovely for weeks, so my brother offered to drive myself and (almost) two year old son to the coast for the day. He picked us up saturday, the heater in his car had broke, so I took blankets! We sat in a cafe at Hayling lsland on the seafront and watched the snow falling over the sea.

The rest of the summer was warm and sunny I think.

If the bookies would take the bet, Id put a tenner on this summer being better than the last few :-)

June 1960 - I was six and in Majorca with my parents and I clearly remember them talking about how it was snowing in England.

I would rather it didn't do it again!
