Weird Weather Summit Due
7:02am 18th June 2013
We might finally get some answers about Cornwall's weird weather later.
Weather experts are meeting to work out why the winter of 2010 was the Duchy's coldest since records began.
The average temperature in Cornwall plummeted to 2.4C.
Then last year was the third wettest, with floods bringing misery to places like Helston, Lostwithiel and Newlyn.
Across the southwest rainfall reached 157cm.
Tim Smit from the Eden Project said: "Last year was a very painful year for us. We got hit by not only the weather but also the fabulous Olympics quite rightly kept people inside. But it meant they didn't come to us - and many of us in Cornwall suffered because of it.
"Let's not make excuses for it - the Olympics were fab. This year the visitor numbers are going well.
"I'm really hoping for all of us in Cornwall it's a great year, because we deserve a great year.
"Last year the weather was so unbelievably bad - and I don't want people to lose the habit of coming to Cornwall."
At a summit meeting, experts are expected to discuss whether changing weather patterns are down to climate change or a more temporary blip.
Roger Jenkins farms on the Lizard. He said: "Grass has grown at some stages, and stopped at other stages. We've had to start feeding winter feed again to keep the cows going.
"If the milk does drop back - and it will on many farms - there will be a shortage and prices will have to rise.
"I'm a believer in weather going in cycles. I think we're just going through a phase and, in a while, it will change around and we'll have dry summers - it'll all come right again."7:02am 18th June 2013
