    If you have any weather records then put down what would have been your driest and wettest years, my records go back to when I was a mere snip of a lad at 7 years old! Some may go back further though

    Feb # 1998 # 5.1mm

    Mar # 1990 # 3.8mm

    Dec # 1989 # 120.4mm

    What is surprising or unsurprising I suppose is most of the record Rainfall ammounts have been in the "Naughties" years

    Be Interesting to see other Regional Variations

    Here's my list. I've restricted it to the last 30 years as, although my records go back to 1963, the first 15 years were at a different and drier site.

    ---------------------------- DRIEST------------------------WETTEST

    JANUARY.............1997.......13.6 mm--------------------1995.......207.3mm

    FEBRUARY...........1993.......12.5 mm--------------------2002.......206.0 mm

    MARCH................1993.......15.9 mm-------------------1981........176.4 mm

    APRIL..................1984.......11.6 mm-------------------2000........156.0 mm

    MAY....................1991.......11.2 mm--------------------2006........152.4 mm

    JUNE...................1983.......16.4 mm--------------------2007........219.4 mm

    JULY....................1982.......14.7 mm--------------------2007.......140.7 mm

    AUGUST...............1995.......10.7 mm-------------------2004........245.6 mm

    SEPTEMBER..........1986.........8.2 mm-------------------1994........173.0 mm

    OCTOBER.............1978.......26.3 mm-------------------1998........236.1 mm

    NOVEMBER...........2001......52.7 mm--------------------2000........211.7 mm

    DECEMBER...........2004......53.0 mm--------------------1993........231.7 mm

    TOTAL...............................246.8 mm------------------------------2356.3 mm

    Interesting that at my station the total of the wettest months is 9.5 times that of the driest months whereas at Paul's location it's 17.4 times greater.
