It is frequently claimed that rainfall is becoming more extreme because of global warming.
I have previously shown that data for England & Wales does not support this theory.
KNMI helpfully also provide graphs for the different regions that make up the England & Wales Precipitation Series. These are the monthly anomalies since 1873:
There is precious little evidence there that extreme rainfall is either becoming more common or intense in any of the regions. About the only spike is for the North West during the winter of 2015/16.
Just as significant is the fact that very dry months are also much less common than they used to be.
Yet another case where the facts don’t match the hype.
