Rainfall

The chart below shows the monthly local rainfall totals measured by the Rt. Rev. Ian Griggs and Paul Neate

The total annual rainfall figures (in mm) for recent years are shown below (Average is 2560mm).

If anyone has monthly or annual totals for other years and would like to share them, we'd be happy to include them on this page (with full acknowledgement of course).

People often say that the weather was much better in the 'old days', well not really - the tables below show the annual rainfall figures recorded by Rev. W P Morris in Patterdale between 1879 and 1902 (The figures have been converted to mm from inches).

Also, some of the wettest and driest years measured at Patterdale Hall and mentioned by Miss Elizabeth Little in her 'Chronicles of Patterdale' published in 1961.
