The 13th with 23.7mm of rain was the wettest August day for five years.
Total rainfall for the three summer months of June, July and August was 284.7 mm which represents 161.8% of the average for the years 2000/6 and making it the wettest summer for this period. The Met Office figure for this same period right across the country is 358.5mm and probably represents an all time record.
This blows the folklore that predicts the summer rainfall right out of the water.
