The BBC reports:
About 20 of the UK’s leading scientists and meteorologists are due to meet at the Met Office to discuss Britain’s “unusual” weather patterns.
They will try to identify the factors that caused the chilly winter of 2010-11 and the long, wet summer of 2012.
They will also try to work out why this spring was the coldest in 50 years – with a UK average of 6C (42.8F) between March and May…
However a discussion of man made climate change is unlikely to feature.
“This meeting isn’t looking at climate change, it’s looking at climate variability in recent seasons,” said Dan Williams.
