Top Meteorologists Discuss Britain's Changing Weather

June 19, 2013

A team of the U.K. leading leading scientists and meteorologists will meet at the Met Office in Exeter, England to discuss Britain`s "unusual" weather patterns.

The 20-strong group will try to identify the factors that caused the chilly winter of 2010-11 and the long, wet summer of 2012. They will also try to work out why this spring (2013) was the coldest in 50 years - with a U.K. average of 42.8F between March and May.

Over the past three years, British weather records have been under increasing pressure - the big freeze that gripped the U.K. in December 2010 saw the lowest temperature for the month in 100 years and even the buzz of the London Olympics could not disguise the less-than-impressive summer last year (2012), the second wettest for the U.K. since records began.
