May 2021 – Latest 12 month rainfall stats

Despite the dry April across all regions the latest gridded regional (UKP) precipitation twelve month accumulations show that the North of Scotland (98.5%) is still the only region with a below average total in the last year, whilst the Northwest of England and North of Wales were the wettest, running at a very wet 134.2% of the 1981-2020 LTA.

Annual rainfall across England and Wales since 1931 is up by 9.8% in the last ninety years.
