1980's weren't too bad weatherwise, 83 was memorable, we had an awful spring, unseasonable bad weather in late May, thean when things broke in early June we had a good summer, it lasted till late sept if I remember right. 1984 and 1989 were also good years.
Despite looking around the net I cant seem to find a resource which can tell you what the weather was like on a specific day in Britain over the last few decades..im an an amateur writer trying my hand at fiction set in the recent past so I would to research stuff to give scenes set on a precise day a bit of authenticity. Can anyone help. Cheers all.
