Britain set to sizzle this summer
Written by The Cormorant Hotel
The Met Office has forecast the summer of 2016 to be a scorcher, with highs of 33°C, though there could also be a risk of hurricanes - sounds like a typical summer to us!
The hotter than normal temperatures should span over the next three months, so this summer will be the perfect time to visit our Fowey hotel and see beautiful Cornwall in the sun, but be prepared for intermittent bouts of slightly colder weather and the characteristic rain we know in Britain.
The warm weather forecast will be welcomed by everyone across the country, from those attending any festivals being held around the country, including a number in Cornwall, and annual open air events like Wimbledon.
Though top temperatures might not beat last year's record of 36.7°C, bookmakers are putting the odds on this summer being the hottest for more than a century at 3/1.
However, the down side of the warm temperatures in the coming months will bring La Niña, a weather pattern where cold temperatures in the Pacific Ocean whip up tropical hurricanes in the North Atlantic in August, possibly bringing some heavy rain and wind, but each time it occurs is different.
Whatever the weather, Cornwall is a lovely place to visit, and the warm sunshine that is coming our way means you can stay at our Fowey hotel, see the sites along the south coast and try our delicious summer menu at our award winning restaurant.
