Well, its December (2014) and its looking a close thing! The yearly rain record at this site is 1175 mm set in 1974.
Rain so far this year is 1102 mm* – 73 mm off the record and 2 weeks to go.
Will it be the wettest year since ’75? Probably not but its just possible.
Actually its not been dreadfully wet ALL year, January and February started the year off to a very wet start but since then its not been so bad – indeed, September, at 10.1 mm, was the driest since 1971 when only 7 mm were recorded!
* Note: this is from the manual 4″ rain gauge, not the automatic recorder – so it does not tie up exactly with the data in the web site. The automatic recorder is a tipping bucket rain gauge and these are not as accurate as a good old fashioned manual funnel and bottle.
