At Plymouth, Friday is the wettest day of the week (4,359.4mm), while Tuesday is the driest (4,061.3mm).
At Edinburgh airport, Saturday is the wettest (3,016.7mm) and Sunday the driest (2,759mm).
At Cromer, Thursday is the wettest (2,576.3mm) and Saturday the driest (2,244.6mm).
At Heathrow, Friday is the wettest (2,676.9mm) and Sunday the driest (2,361.2mm).
I have no doubt that if a chi-square test were to be applied to these figures, they would be no more statistically significant than Mr Nicholson's, as Professor MacDonald P Jackson has shown (letter, 27 July).
