Supplementary notes
*2017 data is provisional

Average rainfall in the UK was calculated by aggregating regional rainfall data and weighted based on each regions share of hydro-electricity generating capacity.

Prior to 2016 data was published by Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC). Following Theresa May's appointment as Prime Minister in July 2016, the department was remodeled into Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), which has since published the data.
