Just a week until June and it's STILL snowing: But warmer weather may make welcome return over the bank holiday weekend with highs of 19C | Mail Online

This is very tiring right now, although it snowed on 6th of june in 1976 and that summer was hot so there is still a tiny bit of hope that things will get better.

All the summer clothes in stores look so out of place when its so cold and miserable outside.
Ive read today that this year spring has been the coldest in paris for over 100 years too.

Only 30 years? I don't know about the rest of Britain, but in England at least there is a chance this might turn out the coldest spring since 1891.

Hopefully this summer will even things out with a repeat of June 1822, July 2006 and August 1995 then.

June: 26.6C
July: 28.2C
August: 27.0C

Yeah, right. Your commentary on April? Read the NOAA report.

Looking cool at the start of June still (though June 1995 started off cold and we know how that summer turned out).

London weather forecast 14 days - Rain risk - Wind direction - HDD CDD

Average high should be around 20C at the time of year.

We'll have to wait till the end of spring to draw conclusions, but as it stands today this spring is the coldest since 1986 in Paris, not over 100 years. It's the 34th coolest spring since Paris-Montsouris station opened in 1873. No big deal.

The BBC and the rest of the UK media are most likely referring to the UK as a whole, whose temperature data does not go back as far as the CET's. So for the UK as a whole it's only the coldest for about 30 years. But you're right that for England (and specifically the CET area) it's likely to be the coldest since at least 1962, and possibly since 1891 (we'll need to see the final CET stats for this month - looks like another sub 11C month). The main contributors to this spring's cold was that wintry March we've had, which was colder than the three preceding winter months. April was cold but not exceptionally so, same thing for May (although it hasn't been so cold so late since 1996).

I read where the Spring of 1979 (if I recall correctly) was the sixth-coldest in the CET record, so in this case the coldest in 30 years isn't exactly peanuts.
