Summer 2012 was wettest for 100 years

: News & Articles : Smallholding and Self Sufficiency : Summer 2012 was wettest for 100 years
Posted on: 2012-09-03

The summer of 2012 has been the wettest for 100 years, according to Met Office data.

Figures show an average of 366.8mm of rain fell across the UK over the three months - June, July and August. That compares with a normal average UK rainfall of 241mm.

The worst hit regions have been the north west of England and north Wales with 475mm of rain, representing 171% above the seasonal norm. The West Country has also suffered badly, recording rainfall at 450mm or 184% above average summer figures.

In percentage terms the south east did not fare much better with 180% more rain than usual but its overall figure of 290mm, reflecting the relative dryness of the region, is much lower than areas further north and west.
