No 'Fry-day'

In May, the UK Met Office's seasonal forecast suggested that July and August might be warmer than usual.  An appropriately cautious, vague statement from an experimental service suitable as a rough guide, but not definitive.

However, the tabloid newspapers took the central idea, elaborated on it (i.e. blatently invented 'facts'), and convinced the masses that today would be the hottest of the year.

It's not. It's currently sunny in Lancaster, but windy, and today's Met Office forecast is "Sunny spells, scattered showers, rain spreading into the west tonight".

Avoid trashy tabloids!
