Editor's Viewpoint: Don't get hopes up

The weathermen and women have been depressingly accurate in forecasting one of the wettest springs and summers in the British Isles, and we in Northern Ireland have taken our share. However, there may be a ray of hope in the relatively good weather yesterday, which was St Swithin's Day. An ancient poem predicts the next 40 days of weather will follow yesterday's pattern.

However, most people here will not hold their breath and keep an umbrella or two handy, just in case. The St Swithin's Day prediction might prove to be another huge dampener on our spirits.
