Rainfall Statistics, 2013

Recommended Posts

January drier than the two preceeding months (though that wasn't difficult as they both were in the region of 150mm), but still wetter than average.

January: 95.2mm

2013 so far: 95.2mm

Only counted 44mm here which is way below average 77mm

That is partly explained by the snowy spell but the first half of the month was quite dry.

Snow often blows nearer to horizontal so is not caught by the rain gauge.

Once the bucket is full of snow no more can be held until some has thawed - which often did not occur for several days.

January is not an especially wet month here anyway, there are two peaks in the average monthly figures, centred on August and November

February to May is the driest period and there is a shorter dryish spell in September/October

185mm here, drier than the average of 225mm, dry for most of the month but a lot of rain in the last week brought it back closer to average.

About 30mm of that fell as snow.

Not usually a problem with a traditional Snowdon guage, just bring in the funnel and bottle and melt inside either by waiting or pouring in warm water (obviously deducting this amount!). If drifting or blowing out of the funnel is a problem, then estimate the level depth and press the up-turned funnel into that part of your garden, then likewise to melt, best you can do with snow!

65mm rain (5mm as snow) from that last system, 110mm now this month vs 140mm average. If the latest models are right we should get the first above average month of the year. 410mm so far for 2013.

This month will come along at average which is odd considering it's a very cold month normally very cold months tend to be dry.
