Photo-a-day 167: The Great British Summer

20120615-174708.jpg

I was a little amused to watch people battling the wind and rain as they passed this sign in the window of the Northumberland Street’s branch of the Newcastle Building Society today.

I read the other day that early June is the European monsoon season. The warmth of April and May causes the air to rise, and windy wet winds from the Atlantic sweep back across Europe to fill the vacuum. Apparently, this effect was first identified in the 1950s. Climatology couldn’t be further from my specialty, but let’s hope this theory is right: after all, it suggests that summer’s on the way!

It might not be immediately obvious from the picture, but it was snowing fairly heavily when I took this shot! Luckily, the snow doesn’t seem to be lying, at least so far. It’s quite a change from the sunny weather of last week!

The lake in Paddy Freeman’s Park is frozen today – which is a bit surprising, given that it doesn’t feel nearly as cold as it looks.

It’s beginning to look a lot like, erm, springtime?
