Maidenhead experiences wettest August bank holiday Monday since 1986

Maidenhead has experienced its wettest August bank holiday Monday in almost 30 years.

The town hasn't seen as much rain on the day since 1986 when the remnants of hurricane Charlie brought more than 35mm of rain to parts of the borough.

The three-day weekend - which had 17mm of rain yesterday alone - was also the coldest August bank holiday since 1986 which even saw ground frost in a few East Berkshire locations on Sunday morning.

Since the August bank holiday was moved to the end of August in 1965, Maidenhead has only been completely without sunshine on bank holiday Monday in 1973, 1986 and 2014.

Records also show it has been the wettest August for three years.
