'For the rain it raineth every day' : Twelfth Night — Shakespeare

Over recent months many Tattenhallers may have been wondering whether this past winter's rainfall has been breaking any records.

Our amateur meteorologist has been measuring the rainfall, comparing the statistics with previous years, and has come up with the following:

*The period October 1st 2015 — March 31st 2016 has been the wettest winter for a decade; with January the wettest month.

*In the first 100 days of 2016 Tattenhall has had twice as much rain as in the same period in 2015.

*Of the ten wettest days this winter (more than half an inch of rain), five have been on Saturdays. This has played havoc with some sports with football fixtures having to be postponed and golf courses out of bounds for extended periods.

Rainfall is often very localised and Tattenhall Online would love to know whether there are any other weather watchers living in and around the village who collect weather statistics.
