Dr. Johnson had wisely observed, "when two Englishmen meet, their first talk is of weather." Weather is an enduring English obsession; it's something that keeps the English on their toes. And this Summer Olympics, the English are going to keep their fingers crossed! England summer lasts from June to September and is the warmest time of the year. England receives rain, mainly thunderstorms in the southern, eastern, and central England. With plenty of sunshine and little rain, London Olympics is likely to attract crowds by multitudes to witness the momentous event. While the meteorological department have forecasted a pleasant weather during this time of the year, it's difficult to be so certain when you are talking about the English summers.
Summer temperatures seldom go above 30 oC (86 oF), that can be primarily seen in London and the South Eastern parts of the country. Scotland and northern England experience the coolest summers while Wales and the south-west of England have hot summers and the south and south-east of England have the warmest summers.
No matter what time of the year it is or how big an event, the good old British weather is likely to take a toll on your plans. Thanks to the unpredictable climate, one can expect a heavy gust of wind or rainfall anytime. Regardless of the unpredictability, there are a few rules that underpin the seasons. Summers are hot and dry, especially the months of July and August. To cut long story short, summer is the best season to visit London, holiday traffic increases substantially during this peak time and there is plenty to do and explore during this time.
