St Swithin’s Day

Tomorrow is St. Swithin’s Day and if legend be believed if it rains tomorrow then it shall rain for the next 40 days.  Of course, as with most weather lore there is little truth behind this.  Since the start of records in 1861 there has neither been 40 dry or 40 wet days following the corresponding weather on St. Swithin’s Day. So despite the forecast of a rather unsettled day with showers tomorrow you should keep up to date with forecasts from the Met Office to really find out what weather may be in store for the next few days.
