Rainfall Patterns

Well I don’t know about you, but we’ve had quite a dry week.  Some weeks are like that, while others are the opposite, so rainfall measurements are usually collected over a long period of time.

This map shows typical rainfall totals for a whole year.  Find your location and use the key to see how much rain you usually get in a year, in your area.  If you are in Ireland then here’s your map.

Notice that, in both Britain and Ireland, the west (on the left) is generally wetter than the east.  The wettest areas tend to coincide with areas of high ground.
