The wettest day in February in Bury St Edmunds was the lowest recorded in the month for eight years.

A total of 3.9mm of rain fell on February 17 in the town. The last time such a low amount was recorded was February 2008, when 3.1mm fell on a single day.

During the entirety of last month only 19mm fell during 14 days of rainfall.

Alan Messem, Bury weatherman, said the low rainfall last month meant the winter total’s were down.

“The December to February winter total stands at 136mm - 8mm below average, from 37 days with more than 1mm of rainfall - 6 more than average,” he said.

Three days of snow were recorded during the month, with sleet on February 3 and snow on the ground on February 14 and 15.

The first 24 hours of March brought 8.6mm of rainfall.
