Remember the wet July last year when 102.2mm of rain was recorded at the Met Office recording station at Rhode Hill Question Small beer for already the same location has recorded 103mm in the first eight days of this month. What’s more the record for the wettest July since records began at the site in 1994 is within a whisker of being beaten. That stands at 103.6mm for July 2001 and as I write this it has certainly been surpassed.

By the way for the 24 hours up until 09:00 GMT this morning (9th) we had 39.8mm. (This record is officially recorded for the 8th July. For reasons why please see the website) This was the wettest day since July 2005.

For complete rainfall data since 2000 at this site go to: http://homepages.nildram.co.uk/~rhg/index.html

Whatever happened to those hot dry summers that climate change was to bring Question

And as of now (14:00 hrs) it is still hammering down.
Looks like the 1994 record is about to be broken.

The total rainfall for July, at 146 mm, turned out to be 2.6 times greater than the July average for the years 1994 – 2007.
