It's called 'PROVEN, ONCE AND FOR ALL: HOW LONDON HAS THE COLDEST AND WETTEST WEATHER IN THE UK AND INDEED THE WORLD, WHILE THE GOWER PENINSULA ENJOYS RELATIVE WARMTH AND DRYNESS', and it's published in The International Non-Aligned Meteorological Survey.

It was 106 degrees here today with no relief in sight. The brits & others from the uk would have a tough time dealing with the weather here. When i watch the old sherlock holmes movies its often cold, rainy & foggy. Thats my type of weather minus the cold. I like it cool. I would love to spend a few months or so in england. Its a beautiful country.

I don't have a tough time with it. I love the weather here - the summer is hot yes, but the rest of the year is beautiful.

A snapshot of weather in any city would never tell the true story. You are only seeing a two week period in London as they happen to be in a rainy, cool pattern. If they were in a two week period of settled warm weather everyone would be saying how much better the weather is there. Please check weather stats and never go by a two week window anywhere!!

Oh and stick around and watch the sunshine and warmer temps the rest of the Olympics.

Great post






I can't believe you argued with him as long as you did. Anyone with any smidgin of weather knowledge gets that Wales is cloudier, wetter, and cooler than London hands down.

London has the worst weather in the UK and is undoubtedly a steaming dump of horse manure.

Just kidding.

I'm am surprised at Swansea's 16C July minimum. Does anyone else think that could be a mistake? The monthly records are full of holes.
