The Met Office in the UK has posited the idea that we may be looking at up to a decade of washout summers.
Of course just after that prognostication comes a sweltering belt of weather in early July, the best we've seen in a long time.
Maybe we should hope that they keep forecasting the bad weather, then we'll get the good! The record for Northern Ireland was set 30 years ago on July 12th at 30.8 Co. Tyrone hit a high of 30.1C in the latest heat wave, recorded at Castlederg.
There was one unconfirmed figure of 32C in the Tipperary mushroom growing region also in the third week of July. It sure is hot weather for mushrooms!
And the Donegal postman predicts the weather to stay good.
