What has happened to summer

I am currently in the UK visiting family and once again disappointed with the weather. Cold, wet miserable. I remember managing holiday parks years ago and you could almost guarantee sunshine during August, but not anymore. I am used to an average temperature of 32C so 14C is cold for me.

Talking with the family i think next year i will come june/july. What do you think? My family are in the south of England.

Hi Merv sorry the weather has been so bad for your visit. I think with the British weather it is a little like a "lucky dip".

Enjoy your visit, weather permitting.

I live in the South.

I live on a tropical island called Phuket in Thailand. Been there over 18 years now, but like to visit the family once a year. But i am finding August too cold and wet for me.

Hi Swerv, that's a shame I hope you bought some Winter woollies with you.

Not sure that June and July were much better, we have only had a few days at a time that have been really Summery.

Enjoy your visit anyway.

take care

Hi it's really you pays your money and takes your chances over here. I do find that recently though early summer is usually warmer than late. I hope it clears up for you. x

Just came back from a couple of hours by Ryde beach and it was 22C, so maybe August is not so bad after all. haha

Usually these days it rains all through the school summer holidays. August is frequently wet and cool. We have got sunburnt in April and May though!

My son's birthday is on 13th of June and he always has a barbecue on the nearest Saturday and for the last 10 year it has poured, last year we had to hold umbrellas over the barbie so it didn't go out!

Summer! What summer? I honestly think it is the luck of the draw whatever summer month you choose to visit in. British summer at its best and worst every year. xxxx
