2015 has been drier than average so far


It may not seem like it, but rainfall in the first three months of 2015 was 8mm below average, at 126mm.

That makes it a lot drier than 2014 when 197mm had fallen by this time. Bury St Edmunds weather recorder Alan Messem has not yet this year noted a single day in which 10mm has fallen, which has not happened since 2006.

March’s 28.4mm of rain is only 62 per cent of the regional average for the month, making it the seventh below average March in a row.

Alan says the month started dry and ended stormy. Only 1.4mm fell in the first 15 days but on the 17th 5mm fell by 9am and another 3mm by noon, then it rained daily.
