About this book

In Faversham, Kent, in 2003, the highest ever temperature in the UK was recorded: a blistering 38.5 °C (101.3 °F). The word 'blirty' in Scotland describes 'gusts of wind and rain'. The weather is a subject that the British simply cannot leave alone, and for good reason – it's likely that for more than half the year they will experience at least three seasons in one day, so there's always plenty to talk about. This charming miscellany, as wide-ranging and unpredictable as the weather itself, is filled with curious historical facts, amazing statistics and fascinating anecdotes that will keep you entertained come rain or shine!
