Regional rainfall in 2020

In the nine regional UKP regional areas of the UK the 365 day anomalies expressed as a percentage of the 1981-2010 LTA are all well above average. The wettest region at the moment is the combined region of north Wales and the northwest of England with 126.4% of average. The driest of the regions as well as the wettest paradoxically is the north of Scotland where rainfall is only 108.1 % of average. The damage was done in all regions by the record wettest February on record, and despite a very dry April and May the accumulations never got back to average, and since June the gap between the average and actual accumulations has slowly increased in the northwest. Since the wet winter accumulations in the north of Scotland have steadied down but have still been tracking 8% above average since May.
