Reservoir levels

We are now in a state of less water in our SW Water reservoirs than this time last year.. The present break in the drought will arrest the fall temporarily. Interesting to see that the demand for water has decreased in the last 2 decades in the Southwest. Presumably due to metering. This is not what...

Re: Lack of precipitation East Dorset

Compared to your location Martin, our dry spell only started in May. 37.3 mm in May. (Average 61 mm) 8.8 mm to 17th June. (Average 65 mm) The 'winter-half' precipitation [October - March] for Wembury was 130% of LTA. Our South West Water reservoirs are fairly full at around 90% so there is no worry ...

Wet first half of April

Rain total to 16th, 74.2 mm. That's 111% of average. The second half cannot possibly be as wet looking at the medium term forecast. But I would not be surprised to see the 100 mm total being reached by the end of the month. We had 142.9 mm in 2012 followed by a wet June July and August. This can't h...
