A New Weather Record

Let me just remind you of the blog entry for the 30th April 2012 'Wettest April On Record'

Figures released today by The Met Office have confirmed that April 2012 was the wettest in the UK since records began in 1910. This wet month follows the third warmest March since 1910, only beaten by 1938 and 1957. The first two weeks of February were also confirmed as the coldest in the UK for 26 years, a record breaking year so far, but what will May's weather have in store for the gardeners at Worcester College?

Well what did the weather have instore for us from May? The Met Office confirms that the period from April to June was the wettest recorded for the UK, with June being the wettest June since records began in 1910.
June was also the second dullest on record with 119.2 hours of sunshine, only slightly more than the record of 115.4 hours back in 1987.
Total UK rainfall was 145.3mm, more than twice as much as normally expected.

What will the rest of the years weather have in store for us?
