After a spectacular wash out, the British summer is about to see some relief with drier and warmer weather forecast for the coming week.
BBC weather presenter Cecilia Daly explained the situation citing that "this year the jet stream has been much further south than normal and we have had our wettest June on record followed by a wetter than average July."
However, this jet stream is due for a push north resulting in a more summery feeling across the nation as the pressure builds.
The wind and the rain will continue for a while though, before signs of summer struggle to break through.
Tom Tobler, a forecaster with MeteoGroup, the Press Association's weather division, was quoted in the Independent as saying: "We will get high pressure building to the west, and it looks like that's going to give us a couple of dry days on Friday and Saturday.
"It looks like there's going to be high pressure across the south of the UK, so it looks like it's going to be generally drier next week. But northern areas will see some rain, particularly northern Scotland."
Because of Britain being a relatively small island stuck between the Atlantic Ocean and European continent, the jet stream can have a massive effect on our weather patterns.
The stream, a wind flow through the upper atmosphere, is repsonsible for the recent floods because it usually passes from west to east across the Atlantic brushing gently past the UK but this time we were caught on the wrong side.
Now that the stream is due for a shift, British residents should be able to hang up the umbrellas and catch some rays instead. However, bookies are still holding strong odds that the Olympics will be a wash out.
