Wet and Dry

Beneath its report on the Lady Shirley tragedy, the Hull Daily Mail noted in 1948 that it had been the wettest June for many years in Bridlington. With one day to go, 3.83 inches of rain had fallen on the town. This year one of the Weather Underground personal weather stations in Brid has reported just 0.4 of an inch for the month. It has been almost twice as wet in Filey (0.78 inches).

We are told that the reservoirs are still quite full after the wet winter but companies are struggling to treat enough water to meet increased heatwave demands. Hosepipe bans may be necessary – and there could be a shortage of lettuces. So, not much to see here.
