Monthly number of rain days in the United Kingdom (UK) 2014-2019 Between January 2014 and May 2019, the lowest number of monthly raindays occurred in September 2014, when just 5 days recorded 1mm or more of rain. The highest number of raindays was recorded in January of the same year, at 23.4.
Fourth quarter the wettest

The wettest periods of the year tend to be the start and the end. In 2018, the fourth quarter was the wettest, with an average of 452 mm of rainfall. November and December of the same year recorded the highest levels of monthly rainfall after January, at 122.6 and 119.5 mm respectively.

Regional weather

Due to the United Kingdom’s geographical location and landscape, weather conditions can vary greatly. Scotland has on average been the wettest country since 2010. The majority of rainfall is concentrated in the Scottish Highlands, as precipitation often occurs in mountainous regions. As rainfall comes in from the Atlantic, it is the northern and western parts of the UK that are most susceptible to precipitation. This explains why England is the driest of all the regions, as rain deposits reduce as they move east.
