I am in the process of transcribing the rainfall record for Seathwaite Farm.
The record commenced in 1845 and whilst the gauge may have changed location at times, it would appear to be a fairly continuous record.

At present I have done:
1846
1860-62
1864-66
1938 - to present.

1863 is a pesky one, but I have the averages for 1850-99 so I know that the records do exist and I have asked a 'friend' if he can help.

So, if anyone does have any records (other than the BRO - which I have) I would be interested.

Just a few little curiosities for you:

March 2018 - the driest back to at least 1938
Aug 1947 and Feb 1986 - both had 0.0 mm
1855 - the driest year found so far

Well, getting the views, if not the replies!

Seathwaite, March 2018 - the driest since 1900.

I'm getting there and have now got all the data (I think).

will get it transcribed, but slight, though not insurmountable issues are:
reading the writing of the day (is that an 0, 2 or 8?)
adding up all monthly totals and making sure they do add up (taking into account the point about the writing)

and from 1845 the only other March (other than 1900) that was drier than 2018 was 1852.
The third driest in 173 yrs!

Could that be because all the snow just blew away? It was such fluffy stuff!

Yes, much of the ppt in March would have been very difficult to measure, so I would treat returns from March 2018 as suspect that had any significant drifting snow.

Darren

I take it you have asked the Met Office Library for help with this ?
