With Summer well and truly now underway, many of us are wondering what sort of Summer it will turn out to be. Wet or Dry? Cold ? or warmish like last year?
The volatility of the British climate is legendary; 2011 was a remarkably dry year (East Anglia was officially classed as a drought area by DEFRA), yet in 2012 we experienced the UK’s second wettest year since national records began in 1910. The persistent heavy rainfall throughout this winter also resulted in the wettest winter in England and Wales since 1766.
