Widespread reports in the press are suggesting that the next few summers in the UK will be some of the longest, hottest and sunniest on record. This is mainly attributed to the harsh winter and the oceanic and atmospheric phenomenon known as El NiƱo which occurs in the Pacific Ocean.

The pattern of El Nino is suggesting that Britain and much of Northern Europe will be in for a number of long and sunny summers which will come as welcome news after the recent ones.

Rainfall throughout Europe is predicted to be lower this summer too meaning BBQs will be enjoying plenty of use throughout the UK.

The Met office in the UK is usually pretty accurate with these long range forecasts and have predicted many hot days above 30C .
