10th April - Today's News: Multiple Tornadoes in Washington DC


A UK date record on Sunday with 25.5c recorded in Cambridge (and a slightly dodgy 24.9c in my garden) - there is however absolutely nothing to suggest 3 month of hot weather are on the way (as some headlines - including the Scotsman - suggest today), other than the fact that, usually, April, May and June are warmer than March!  The headline appears to be a viral one based on this usual misinterpretation of the Met Office Contingency Planner's Forecast issued last month which does suggest a much higher probablity that April-June will be warmer than average, than colder - mainly due to higher than average sea temeperature - but that doesn't mean a heatwave.
