There is a small corner of Wales, that is call Anglesey. It is no mistake that the MOD have put an RAF base on it. Part of the reason is that generally, the weather is quite good. On the north coast of Anglesey, there is a village called Cemaes Bay. If you look at the maps below, you can see that Cemaes has traditionally had better Sun, and lower rainfall than most of the rest of the country. That is one of our little secrets… (Shhhhh :)) I must update this! It still happens check it out Met Office Graphs:
The same applies to the rainfall. This is a clear one, it is not usually so clear, as Anglesey as a whole gets a bit more rain than the Midlands, and so on the annual maps, it shows as such. What these maps don’t show of course, is that when it rain in Cemaes Bay, it Rains. Big drops. Then the sun comes out again. You get less of the fine “mizzle” we get inland.
But please… if it rains on your holiday… please do not blame me!
