Of no great concern really, but of statistical interest, we currently are running at a rainfall deficit (nationally speaking) once again with the current rainfall percentage of normal over the last 28 days coming in at just 67%, which is the lowest value, relative to average, since the 28 day period up to July 29th, and in terms of actual totals, since the 4 week period up to August 14th.
Below is a chart showing the running 28 day % values since the start of the year. Ever since the summer drought ended, rainfall totals have generally wavered very close to average, but the current trend is downwards once again. And with high pressure once again setting up shop close to Ireland for the coming week, this is a trend that is likey to continue, at least in the short to medium term.
