EAST Lancashire is experiencing higher than average levels of rainfall, according to a local weather expert.
Roy Chetham, who collates data from his monitoring station at his home in Huncoat, said the past fortnight has already seen more than a full month’s average.
Rainfall in the first half of the month was 3.73 inches, already more than a full month's average.
Mr Chetham said temperatures were depressed with a daily mean so far of only 12.4, which is one of the coolest Junes on record.
The weather is expected to become more unsettled with heavy rain and winds on Thursday, with stormy weather forecast for the weekend.
