Just Another British Summer!
By Paul Homewood
I saw a newspaper report the other day, speculating whether this month would be the wettest June on record here. In other words, the usual nonsense.
It has certainly been a miserable week or two, but as the Met Office kindly remind us, rainfall so far this month is round about normal:
Across the UK as a whole, the rainfall total is around average for this stage in the month. However, heavy and thundery showers have given localised large rainfall totals, with some surface water flooding as drains have been unable to cope with the high rainfall rates.

While some areas have had more rain than others, at the end of the day it is just typical British weather!
