The summer (what summer I hear you say) was a little warmer than 2011, but otherwise the coolest since 1998, and it was the coolest autumn since 1993.
The UK annual rainfall total was 1331 mm (115% of average), the second since 1910, narrowly beaten by 2000 (1337 mm). England had its wettest year ever.
We had 1356 hours of sunshine, which is 15% of all time or about 27% of day light hours - pretty bloody dire when you consider that I would have been in the office at work of 65% of this sunshine. That's about 1 hour and 20 minutes of sunshine on average per day!! In statisticians speak - bugger all!
