The record wet weather that has plagued our summer sporting events has been a constant thorn in the side, even threatening the upcoming Olympic Games, with some athletes worried about training and competitive conditions.
But the MET Office has finally given us some positive weather news, with forecasters predicting a return to a more normal summer pattern thanks to the shift northwards of the Jet Stream, creating higher pressure and bringing ‘some brighter, warmer weather` in time for the opening ceremony in 10 days.
The news will be a great relief to the opening ceremony director Danny Boyle, who plans to recreate the traditional British countryside with the likes of a village cricket team, 12 horses, 10 chickens, 70 sheep, a model Glastonbury Tor, two mosh pits and the largest harmonically tuned bell in the world among the features on show.
The improving weather could be great news for any of those planning a break in one of the hotels in London
during the Olympics.
