The Express Tue 22 May. carried a Hot Summer to Break new Records - article without this time allowing comment. Without stating anything about our WeatherAction forecast I would say such a claim is baseless misleading delusional nonsense from people who have no track record of skill (or have a record of the opposite of skill). One part says:
According to Weather Services International, a "pressure blocking” system which caused recent summers to be cool and wet has now moved away. Chief meteorologist Dr Todd Crawford said: "The past four summers have been fairly wet and cool across the UK. This was driven by extreme levels of North Atlantic pressure blocking, as seen in summers 2007-11, but that pattern has now seemingly ended.
I suggest Its time for a reality check for WSI and all. Just look at the Pressure chart for 3 days away http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/charts/FSXX00T_84.jpg - Even if only roughly right THAT still has Jet stream (track of Lows) way to the South - forced down now by a firm Scandinavian High - continuing the type of Jet Stream South ('JSS') pattern in our long range Euromaps pressure patterns. Of course things may eventually change but have WSI, Netweather (yes the ones who had so much to say against our overall May forecast and went very quiet as it turned cold) and others ANY basis for their summer claim?
Article continues below this advert:
Recall the past 5 summers were correctly forecasted by WeatherAction and (VERY) incorrectly forecast by the UKMO and others. No 'Long range' forecasts should be published without reference to past skill and on that only WeatherAction has proven significant skill and all others have zero or negative skill or no record to check. The UKMO, Netweather, WSI etc LONG range 'forecasts' are misleading entertainment not science, and should be disregarded absolutely "
"For the summer WeatherAction will be working closely with ClimateRealists.com to record and monitor the various summer forecasts and claims appearing.

Piers said "An important point to understand is that the UKMO and their fellow travelers are certain on average to overstate warmth since their models are back-tested using the fraudulent warmed-up 'data' of the Climate Research Unit of the 'University' of East Anglia - for discussion on this see:

The reason why some media repeat weather stuff that they know has no value is to create an illusion of warmth as part of the CO2 warmist cult since most people remember forecasts as much as or more than actual weather. This works on short and long time scales. For example The BBC was going on for some days that Monday 21 May in London "would reach ~23C". They changed to 19C about 8 hours ahead. In fact Heathrow (London Official station) reached 17.5C. Was that reported at all let alone with fanfare?
