Feeling the burn as city is driest in years
Stirling has experienced its driest summer in five years.
Up until yesterday (Tuesday) the city recorded 19 consecutive days without rainfall.
Stirling Weather – an amateur weather station located at King’s Park – previously recorded 18 consecutive dry days in July 2013.
Despite light drizzle on Monday morning, levels did not rise high enough to register as a rainy day.
Scott McLean, who runs Stirling Weather, said:“The rain gauge needs to move by 0.2mm to be recorded on our system otherwise it is classed by us as a dry day.”
The longest spell without a dry day, recorded by Stirling Weather, is 29 consecutive rainfall days, between December 2013 and January 2014.
