There has been plenty written about the Express's growing obsession with "dodgy" and often conflicting weather stories but the Met Office has now waded in with a subtle skewering of the newspaper over a flurry of recent stories.
A blog post from the Met Office begins:
There have been several articles in the Daily Express over the last couple of days reporting 'Summer is on the way at last' with temperatures set to reach 34 Celsius this week and 'Tropical storms set for Wimbledon'.
These headlines are unfortunately wide of the mark and rather misleading, both by implying that hot and sunny weather is on the way and that Wimbledon will be hit by tropical storms.
Other than that, the stories are fine.
