Driest start to summer in 57 years

Met Office statistics reveal 2018 has had the driest start to summer in 57 years

We're only halfway there but it's also looking like one of the hottest years on record and likely to finish in the top ten.

The average daily max in the hottest year on record, which was 1976, was 21.0°C. We are currently at 20.9°C so if we continue to see above average temperatures, it could well be record breaking.
