False hope for the UK to have a summer
They are hoping that this huge tropical plume hits them.
Not going to happen. Without the Gulf Stream, the recent pattern has been for these things to go below the UK. Again, the GS would always bring these plumes up north.
Meanwhile, our pattern is quite interesting. A very high plume is pouring down cool air on us, but the air over Toronto is quite stagnant. This gives us 'default' August weather, so we'll have another week or two of warm weather. The huge Gulf plume is missing us.
ps. the plume did go south of the UK but they expect it to curl around. We'll see.
