Has The UK Had Exceptional Winter Rainfall Or Is It Just Weather As Normal?
By Paul Homewood
After the wet winter of 2013/14, Oldgifford posted an analysis of winter rainfall trends, using the sort of proper statistical methods that I missed out on in College (having bunked off lessons!)
His conclusion is that, apart from that one winter, nothing unusual has been happening at all. In engineering terms, the system was very much in control.
His main graph is below, but please read his whole post here. It is very short and to the point.
I would only add that the rainfall total last winter was 237mm, in other words pretty average.
