December 2015: Wettest UK month on record

December 2015 was the UK’s wettest month on the records kept since 1910.

Storms delivered a total of 230mm of rain across the UK, according to the Met Office analysis. That’s nearly twice as much as the long-term December average between 1981-2010.  The second wettest December was in 1929.  In 1929 the rain was widespread, whereas in 2015 a greater amount of rain fell over a much smaller area, mostly in the north of the country.
