WITH scenes like this, no wonder Ponteland has experienced its highest July rainfall in recent years.

Resident Syd Cowan has made weather recordings for many years and for the five days from Saturday, July 16 to Wednesday, July 20, his data showed that the total rainfall in Ponteland was four inches.

The monthly total recorded is more than five inches and is higher than the previous five July measurements, including the 2009 amount of 5.35 inches.

The average July rainfall for the last five years is 3.6 inches.
