Make the most of a Mediterranean June - because Autumn arrives NEXT MONTH

Britain is set for a Mediterranean-beating June - but forecasters warn that July and August will be a wet washout.

Metereologists predict that some days in June will see the temperatures in Britain top the Med's average of 80F or 26C - with the North in particular looking forward to a month of warm summer weather.

However make the most of it, because July and August is set to be cool and wet, meaning sunseekers will have to look abroad to keep their tans topped up.

Met Office spokesman Dave Britten said June would be 'as good as it's going to get and we're not expecting it to get any hotter.

'Although it is unlikely to be as wet as the previous two years, there will be a lot of rain and there is certainly no guarentee that the Glastonbury festival will be dry.'

Although the amount of rainfall is unlikely to top last summer, which was the wettest since records began in 1914, the news is likely to disappoint those who have already witnessed wet bank-holidays and a bleak half-term, especially families planning to holiday at home this summer due to the increases in the cost of living and the strong Euro.





The forecast is also likely to worry farmers and gardeners, who saw crops and gardens ruined by torrential rainfalls last year.

And despite the high hopes for June, the month has not got off to the greatest start with heavy rainfall hitting our shores in the last week, which led to flooding in Devon and Somerset and the cancellation of the Sunrise Celebration 2008 festival, which was due to run until yesterday.
