About this book

A complete guide to the record-breaking weather in the British Isles, written by The Times weather correspondent This book is the first to bring together all the extreme weather events recorded Since Records Began, from the wettest day ever recorded (279mm in Dorset in 1955) to the coldest ever (intriguingly the same temperature 100 years apart in 1895 and 1995).

But it is not only the extremes that are interesting: each season in itself is equally fascinating (the warmest winter being particularly relevant in these days of climate change). The book is subdivided into the four seasons, with details of every record within that season, so you will be able to find the warmest January Since Records Began (1916) along with details of the second warmest (2008). If you ever wondered why Selsey Bill has had the highest number of tornados in the UK and why they occur in the summer, or where the deadliest avalanche happened, this is the book to tell you. Since Records Began is required reading for everyone in Britain -- otherwise, you'll have nothing to talk about.
