May Rain in Borth & Ynyslas

Well, after a very dry April the rain in May has certainly made up for it. It feels as though it’s been raining non-stop for weeks here in West Wales. So far in May, the Borth & Ynyslas Weather Station has reported 123mm of rain. The usual average rainfall for the month of May in...

Rain at Last

That didn’t really feel like a bank holiday weekend. I think its the fact that things still aren’t back to normal due to Coronavirus. We can’t complain though as it had everything we needed. Cycling, running, kayaking, swimming in crystal clear waters, a walk at RSPB Ynyshir, windsurfing, a Spicery meal and some rain at...

Borth Rain Data 0

Walking in the Rain in Snowdonia

Walking in the rain in Snowdonia is one thing, but the conditions yesterday were ridiculous! It was my birthday on Friday so rather than just go out for drinks or a meal, or as we usually do just stay at home and do nothing, I came up with the idea of getting a few friends together...

Everything is sodden, the ground is saturated, low-lying areas are flooded and rivers are at bursting point. The garden is a quagmire and where it isn’t it has...

OK, even I’m getting fed up with it now. What has happened to our summer?  June was the wettest June on record apparently with double the average rain falling during the month, the Met Office has said. Provisional figures showed the UK received 145.3mm (5.7 inches) during June, beating the previous record of 136.2mm (5.4...

Some Much Needed Rain

It seems like ages since we’ve had any rain. Although, I’ve just checked through the historic data on our Borth Weather Station which is all available online  and we last had some rain on April 11th and we had a heavy dew on April 14th so it hasn’t really been that long – Although just...
