Rainfall Report – December 2018

2018 came to an end with a fairly soggy December. Indeed it was the wettest month of the year with 21 wet days and a rainfall total of 130.5 mm (5¼ Inches), 50% above the December average of 86 mm (3½ inches).

Well that’s it for another year. 2018 saw 163 wet days with rainfall totalling 827 mm (32¾ inches), just below the annual average of 851 mm (33½ inches).

The period June to October was relatively dry with rainfall almost half the average for this period. The remaining 7 months all recorded above average rainfall with the exception of Febuary.

I have an A4 sheet showing monthly rainfall etc. back to 1991. If anyone would like a copy, please let me know.
