Looking at Met Office figures released a couple of days ago, there's not much to smile about. We've had twice as much rain as you'd expect for the time of year, appox. 9 mm more than we had in the incredibly wet month of June 2007. And the mean temperature was a very fresh 12.3C or 54.14F.
In case you're wondering, the Met Office speculates that movements in the track of the jet stream, a narrow band of fast flowing westerly winds high in the atmosphere, have contributed to the unseasonal conditions. I'd have a lot to say to that jet stream if I was ever to come across it!
By the way, I think the Olympic logo sucks - but not as much as the two mascots.
