For England, 111.3mm of rain has fallen so far in the month, 91% more than its average.
While it has already been England’s wettest March since 1981, whether it will beat the record figure of 147.2mm in 1947 is still yet to be determined.
With further rain today (31 March,) the final positions will be confirmed on April 3.
The Met office forecast for the next two weeks says: “The start of this period is likely to be rather changeable, with weather systems moving in from the west to bring scattered showers and spells of rain.
“Thick cloud will bring some rain and drizzle at times, most likely across the west.
“Drier and brighter interludes are expected to develop across the UK as a whole, although still with the possibility of some unsettled spells, particularly towards the end of this period.
“It may be that the wettest weather is most probable in the south and west.
“Winds expected to be generally light during this time but there may be some stronger periods, particularly later on. Temperatures likely remaining close to or possibly just above average.”
