FOR the year 1925 the rainfall over the British Isles was very slightly above the average and can be taken as normal. In some districts abnormalities occurred; among the most remarkable of these was the exceptionally dry June, which was absolutely rainless in many localities and one of the driest months on record for the British Isles as a whole. The cold and cheerless summer was the fourth summer in succession of that nature. In spite of the large number of thunderstorms, especially in May and June, there were few days with heavy falls of rain.
