April already wettest in a century

This April is the wettest in the UK  in records which date back to 1910, according to early Met Office figures up to the 29th of the month.

Further rain is to come overnight tonight as outbreaks of heavy and possibly thundery rain affect southern England and Wales, so final rainfall figures for the month will change.

However, the UK has already seen 121.8mm of rain so far – significantly more than the 69.6mm you would normally expect for the month and beating the previous record of 120.3mm set in 2000.
