We all know that as Brits we are obsessed about the weather. And who can blame us? With sunshine one minute and tornados the next, the weather in Britain is almost as unpredictable as a house full of Big Brother contestants.

Like most women in the UK at this time of year, the ladies at AquaBan Herbal have been wondering what the spring will hold. Should we start getting in shape for a great British summer, filled with BBQ’s, picnics and sunbathing? Or should we give it all up and hibernate with a tub of ice cream? Luckily Aquaban Herbal has found someone who has all the answers for you.
Jonathan Powell is the UK’s only long range weather forecaster. He uses historic seasonal trend statistics, with input from more recent trend activity, plus a wide spectrum of other data variables which go into the formula to produce a forecast.
That means that today he is every girl’s best friend because Jonathan can tell us exactly what he thinks the weather is going to be like in the run up to summer….

Rain and wind will dominate the beginning and the end of March, but we might just be lucky enough to get a few settled days mid-month. Temperatures will start to improve so we can kick off our Uggs and start to sport some more dainty footwear.


Remember April last year? Very dry, very sunny, mostly spent sunbathing in a hammock in the back garden? Well unfortunately this kind of weather won’t be repeated in 2008. April showers will be the bane of all our lives, and combined with the rise in temperature anyone who has hair with a tendency to frizz may want to stay indoors for the entire month.

Mid month a few drier and brighter days will knit together to give us all a fine run of sunny weather. This is the point at which you’ll want to be ready to get into some summer-style clothing, so make sure you’re confident enough to reveal your hibernated self!


Mild, wet and windy. Its likely to be quite warm, with brighter skies appearing later in the month, so again you must make sure you’re bikini buff and raring to go when the sun finally gets his Philip Treacy hat on.

Our long range weather forecasting friend, Jonathan Powell, has got this to say…
"Spring will be a real mixture of weather, with some wet and windy spells, probably even gales, and even the potential threat of flooding. Temperatures over all will be encouraging during spring, generally mild across the three months, but even warm or very warm on occasions. Therefore, make the most of what dry and fine spells there are. These will arrive like buses (three and four days at a time) so when they do come, make the most of them, because rain will be waiting in the wings"

Hilary Lynn from AquaBan Herbal comments “I am quite sure that the girls at AquaBan Herbal are not the only ones who shudder at the thought of exposing their bodies when they’re not at their best, but thanks to Jonathan’s forecast we can prepare ourselves and be ready for even the briefest glimmer of sunshine.

British ladies should prepare themselves so they are able to make the most of the wet spring weather by getting into the gym and avoiding those naughty treats. Unfortunately many women are unaware that their bulging waistline might be a result of bloating caused by water retention, which no amount of working out will shift. In fact up to three pounds of excess water may be trapped in the body at any time.

Water retention is most frequently associated with PMS, but warm weather, long periods of immobility such as standing all day or travelling and too much salt in the diet can all be factors. If you do suffer from water retention a balanced diet, cutting back on salt, upping your exercise, drinking plenty of water and using a natural herbal diuretic like Aquaban Herbal can help.”

So there you have it. As the scouts would say, be prepared! Make sure you have your Wayfarers and a good sun screen packed in your handbag for those sunny spring days when they appear.
