    I reckon after this dry period, we will literally be beating these records too...


    From April to July 2012 the UK experienced a period of exceptionally wet weather, breaking previous rainfall records and resulting in several significant flood events. The wet weather affected all of England, Wales and eastern Scotland. April, June, and the period April to July were each the wettest on record in the England & Wales precipitation series from 1766, while for the UK overall, summer 2012 (June, July and August) was the wettest since 1912. The record rainfall brought the England and Wales drought 2010 to 2012 to an abrupt end. In contrast to the wet weather elsewhere, the far north-west of Scotland saw well below-average rainfall from March to October 2012. The persistent wet weather was due to a shift in the jet stream to a much more southerly track than normal, bringing a succession of Atlantic low pressure systems and associated fronts across the southern half of the UK.
