According to meteorologists at British Weather Services, there will be 90 days of hot and dry weather this year which will reach its peak in July and last well into August. While they don’t guarantee a rain-free three months, the experts claim that an analysis of weather patterns over the past 100 years show that the wet summers of 1997 and 1998 will mean that we are now due a period of sunny weather.
