Another summer month with well over the average monthly rainfall, 177% of the average for the month, although not to the degree of the previous two months. The average post 2000 rainfall for the summer months of June, July and August is 209.4 mm this summer 240.6% of that amount was recorded with 503.8 mm. During the last 12 months four months have shown above average rainfall whilst eight have had below average rainfall. Looking at the individual months it is interesting to see that the average rainfall seems no longer to exist each month is either extremely dry or extremely wet having ranged from 32.6% and 341.5% of the averages during the last 12 months. The closest to an average was December 2011 with 82.1% of the average. Predictions about climate change have mentioned extremes of conditions and we certainly seem to be seeing that now. A few years ago I predicted that the The European Monsoon of July would spread into June and August. Are we now seeing that? If so say farewell to the English summer.

Unfortunately I was only able to read the raingauge on one occasion from 14th to 25th August and therefore only averages have been entered on the chart for this period. Although the overall total for the month is accurate
