How wet?

01/07/2012

The April to June quarter was Britain’s second wettest since records began in 1910.

Up to 27 June, total rainfall was 130.1mm – 6mm short of the 2007 record.

It is already the wettest June on record for Wales, with 186.3mm of rain this month, compared with the previous record of 183.1mm set in 1998.

We were in England for 10 days from late May and spent a wet weekend in Yorkshire.

Just how wet spring and early summer had been was illustrated by our host who finished planting potatoes while we were there.

Last year he’d got the crop planted in 17 days, this year it took 10 weeks.
