In April (2019) rainfall for much of the UK was only 73% of the long term average. In the preceding twelve months (May 2018 to April 2019) most areas of the country received below average rainfall, and many lakes, streams and rivers are lower than would usually be expected at this time of year. More information is available in the Monthly Hydrological Summary
