There will be rain. There's always rain.

I hope the acclimate to the heat. The first time I visited London it was 80 degrees Fahrenheit and the lead story on the news was about all the people who ended up in hospital as a result.

I lived in West Yorkshire, and you'd swear that you're in Atlanta from how people react to flurries.

Not sure where subby is going with their headline but the UK has one of the mildest and consistent climates on earth.

They may have to turn Dibley into a reservoir after all.

Yes, but climate change means we're going to have EXTREME mildness and consistency.

I HAVE A SMALL, TATTERED CLIPPING THAT I SOMETIMES CARRY WITH ME...  and pull out for purposes of private amusement. It's a weather forecast from the 'Western Daily Mail and it says, in toto: 'Outlook: Dry and warm, but cooler with some rain.'

There you have in a single pithy sentence the English weather captured to perfection: dry but rainy with some warm/cool spells. The Western Daily Mail could run that forecast every day - for all I know, it may - and scarcely ever be wrong.

Exactly. The only parts of the UK with constant weather are the parts where it pretty much always rains.

UK, that's where they used to grow wine grapes because it was so warm, right?

Coincidentally, what TFA describes is better wine growing conditions in the UK - warmer, drier summers and milder winters. You should take a look.

Well currently any change would mean less rain...
