    Historic Weather

    This summer has been pretty awful for our area and I want to find out the historic weather (rainfall really) for our area for the last 10 years or so.
    Does anyone know a good site where I can put in a postcode or location that would give me this information.
    Thanks in advance

    Have a search for the Met Office historic station data. I think your nearest station is Paisley and with a bit of spreadsheet fiddling this will be useful:

    And this tells you how to import it into Excel: http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/climate/...on-data/import
    I like putting. (2018 handicap: 10.0 ... 10.1)

    Graphs are cool but T-tests are better, esp for comparing two sets of data like two summers in the same location.
