Local Historical Weather

Maulds Meaburn - since 2007 five out of the seven Augusts have recorded 100mm+ of rain

The following was submitted by Mr. W. Hoggarth of Shap (Copy Hill) to the 'British Rainfall Guides' regarding the August of 1874

   'This has been one of the wettest months (except January); much of the rain fell at night, accompanied by thunder and lightning; most of the wind blew in the daytime; there were 10 days (18th to 27th) without any rain, which greatly facilitated the cutting of the "abundant harvest"; in the north of England, much of the corn is still unhoused, as the rain began to fall at the end of the month in large quantities, causing a great flood and doing much damage to the crops.'

'HISTORICAL EVENTS' (above) is a new page that is a start in recording historical weather in our immediate locality.  

The Appleby section of the 'Historical' page now contains all monthly rainfall totals from 2000 to present from Mill Hill - along with comparisons to the rainfall from this site, Newton Rigg and Shap since 2008.
