July 1999 was a long dry period and so was July 1990. If you have anymore - please tell us about them.

Some places went a month without rain in summer 1995, from late July to late August. Also I believe some places were rainless for 20+ days in Sep and early Oct 2002 (often forgotten because after this it hardly stopped raining for 2 months!)

Many places In england reported two to three weeks of no rainfall from January to February this year, this was caused by a blocking high over the British Isles which refused to move.

Not far from where I live, Warrington reported no rain from the 1st of April 1980 to the 19th of May 1980, 49 days

And it never stopped once it started??? :D

Interesting to update this maybe?

I guess 2003, 2006, 2011, 2018, 2020, and 2022 have all featured some extended "drought" periods, mainly during the springs and summers?

April 2021 and May - June 2023 could also be considered as well. Some spring months in 2010, 2015 and 2017...
