    Unhappy Wet, cold forecast for 2010

    Wet, cold forecast for 2010

    By Rebecca Lewis

    Take this as a weather warning - from summer through to the end of winter, 2010 is going to be a miserable year.

    Ken Ring, a long-term forecaster with unorthodox methods but a surprisingly accurate track record, has predicted next year's weather to be "disappointing", with wet and cooler summer months, followed by a winter that lasts a month longer than this year, with record-breaking cold snaps.

    The summer will be rainy, Canterbury could be as low as five degrees by February, and March and April could see the coldest months on record for half a century.

    Christchurch can expect its heaviest snowfall since 1945, Wellington will face gale force winds, and thousands of shorn sheep in the Hawke's Bay and Manawatu may die from the cold.

    It's also likely next year's ski season will see the last decent powder for five years - although chances are it will run through until January 2011.

    Default doom and gloom merchants

    Looks as though we have a British Weather person forecasting, and when have they ever got it right.

    Any weather is better than the cold damp dark miserable days in the UK.......

    Nz weather is always better than Uk...especially in sunny Dunny
