Ukraine planning to use rockets to break up rain clouds if bad weather threatens next month's Euro 2012

KIEV (REUTERS) - Ukraine is planning to fire rockets to break up rain clouds if bad weather threatens to upset soccer matches during next month's Euro 2012 tournament, a government official said on Monday. 'Our (missile) batteries are being prepared for dispersing rain clouds,' the official, who declined to be named, told Reuters. Weather forecasters predicted there would be dry, warm weather for at least the first two European Championship games to be played in Ukraine. 'We expect there will be no rain in Ukraine on June 9. The temperature is likely to be between 20 and 24 deg C,' Mr Anatoly Prokopenko, deputy head of Ukraine's State Weather Forecast Centre, told Reuters. Ukraine is co-hosting the tournament with Poland from June 8-July 1. Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus. blog comments powered by Disqus
