UK & Ireland Final Summer Forecast Review 2014
The Met Office are now confirming a more near average summer with temperatures and rainfall close to normal levels for the season (as suggested in our long range 2014 summer forecast issued in early April to subscribers + below media links from the Daily Mirror x 2)
The Met Office also state that rainfall during the last few days of August will mean the summer will be slightly wetter than average (our forecast always stated that August would be wetter than average, with June and July likely to be more near to above average).
The following Daily Mirror articles from the 5th and 7th May also stated the following:

James Madden of Exacta Weather said: "Overall, the long-range summer forecast looks mixed. It's not going to be a wash-out but it wont be as good as last year."

But, Mr Madden, whose team predicted last year’s record-breaking summer, said there was no change to the forecast he announced last month.
He added: “It will be a more near-average summer in terms of overall temperatures and overall rainfall amounts.”
The Met Office have also confirmed no major heat-waves for June and July in the link below, despite earlier indications for one of the hottest summers ever from top climate scientists and themselves.
Our long range summer forecast also stated the following in reference to El Nino predictions and the hottest summer ever:
There has also recently been reports from scientific experts in reference to the hottest summer ever occurring during 2014 on the basis of El Nino weather patterns. Unfortunately, these predictions do not consider how solar activity can influence our weather patterns and other major factors such as the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) in relation to the frequency and strength of El Nino and La Nina episodes. The PDO identifies warm or cool surface waters in the Pacific Ocean (largest ocean in the world) on a monthly basis, with each cool or warm phase generally lasting for around 20-30 years in duration. We are currently in a 'COLD' phase of the PDO, of which La Nina episodes (cooling) are more prevalent and stronger, whereas El Nino (warming) are less infrequent and weaker overall (current indications therefore over-hype the El Nino conditions in current model suggestions). However, El Nino (warming) episodes will still occur, but they will be less infrequent and much weaker in their overall and predicted duration.
Our long range summer forecast to subscribers also identified exactly when the warm to hot spells of weather would occur + in an even earlier article in the Daily Express from the 7th April (before the above Daily Mirror articles):
James Madden said: “Some periods of warm and settled weather can be expected throughout this summer – in particular in the latter part of July and into the first half of August when many parts of the country could see temperatures ranging in the mid to high 20s 'AT TIMES'.
“Some warmer incursions of weather are also plausible from the mid-month points in both June and July, in particular, in the southern half of the country.
A generally settled theme and a prominent and widespread warm/hot spell with temperatures generally ranging in the mid to high 20s developed across large parts of the country throughout the latter part of July + it remained warm into the first part of August with temperatures reaching 25C in parts of the UK every day up to the 8th.
A warmer incursion of weather was also noted in mid-June when temperatures reached 26.8C in parts of the south on the 13th and 27C later in parts of both Scotland and Ireland on the 18th. A further incursion of warmer weather was also noted in mid-July when temperatures reached 32C in parts of the south on the 18th.
Despite the remnants of Hurricane Bertha disrupting the mid-month warm/hot spell that should have followed on from this, the following Mirror article from the 3rd August also stated:
And between the end of August and the start of next month weather experts said the country can look forward to basking in another mini-heatwave to round off a second successive glorious summer season.
James Madden, meteorologist with Exacta Weather, said “In the latter part of August and into the start of September there is also likely to be another warm to very hot period as high pressure builds northwards across many parts of the country. Temperatures could again climb to the high 20s once again.”
The 6 week ahead August/September forecast also stated:
This period could also result in some further surges of warm to hot and more settled/drier weather at times, in particular, towards the latter part of the month and into the start of September.
The original autumn forecast from 5 months ahead also stated the following in italics:
The 2014 Autumn period is likely to experience a more near average to mild/warm theme at times to begin with, in particular, throughout the first half of the season (September to early/mid October). September and into early October may therefore still offer some bursts of temporary warmth and Indian summer type weather as winds prevail from a southerly course to our shores.
The following article within the Irish Examiner from Friday 29th August also stated the following:
James Madden, meteorologist with Exacta Weather, said most parts of Ireland can look forward to basking one final time this year in temperatures as high as the mid-20s.
He said: “Summer is set to return with a vengeance across many parts of Ireland as we progress throughout this weekend and into next week.
“It will gradually become much warmer as high pressure becomes a more dominant feature and builds in many parts of the country. “The widespread warmth is also set to last over a minimum of several days to two weeks at the very least. “There will be a risk of some unsettled weather and showers at times, but many parts of the country can look forward to some well above-average temperatures for the time of year, as the Irish summer makes a late comeback in terms of some widespread warmth and periods of glorious sunshine. “The warmest temperatures are likely to be recorded in some southern and eastern parts of Ireland, but literally anywhere could see temperatures sky-rocketing within this period.”
However, Mr Madden urged people to make the most of the fine spell, as he warned the second half of autumn would see a “major reversal” of the mild conditions, with fog, frost, and wintry showers becoming widespread.
