Metcheck's weather assessment

Metcheck.com is where I go to check the weather cos I think it's the best, most accurate source. Here's their assessmet of the next week's weather. I love the professionalism of the first part contrasted with the last paragraph.
    Sorry to say it, but this week does in fact signal a large shift in weather patterns from a blocking high, to a transient system with unsettled weather pushing in for the end of the week.

    The difference this year with the placement of the high, compared to previous years, is that it's stubbornly stayed out to the West of the UK. This has allowed a somewhat cooler airstream to push in around the top of the high.

    During this week, so weather fronts continue to slip down from the North-west. They will weaken as they push South-east bringing nothing more than cloud and patchy drizzle to Western and Central areas from midweek onwards.

    It's from Thursday, where a deep area of low pressure pushes its front South-east across all areas which breaks the back of the high. A much cooler airmass will spread South across the UK in time for the weekend. After this, we look out West to see further unsettled weather pushing in for the remainder of next week.

    So, as Summer 2007 draws to a close, there is only one word to sum it up really... pants.
