Yes John, that makes perfect sense. Just looking at Dublin Apt's (sheltered east coast region) averages here, and they seem roughly similar to yours (73mm) for August. 

I would imagine that rainfall wise, the east of Scotland would compare favorably with that of the east of England? which I know from experience is a very dry region of the UK. 

I did visit Dublin back in the autumn of 2010 in what to date, is the one and only trip to Ireland which I have made (since that incorporates the whole island which is geographically known as Ireland, you will have seen by process of elimination that I've never actually been to Northern Ireland) and what at time was also the first location which I had ever visited outside of the UK.

For most of the time when I was there, the weather was generally OK for most of the time, although I remember very well, that wind which blew through the valley every time I crossed the River Liffey which passes right through Dublin's city centre. There was the odd dampish day when I was there, but I can also remember one really wet day when I was there, when the rain went right through me and I got absolutely soaked.

However, the fact that Dublin (along with Belfast in Northern Ireland) lie on Ireland's coast means that I would therefore expect it to be drier there on average than most other parts of Ireland and to a certain extent, I probably benefited from from that quite a lot when I was there. As far as Edinburgh is concerned though, it is true that our rainfall totals are comparable with many part of of the east of England and it turns out in fact, the we actually get less rain here on average than places like New York over in America.

 

MY THREE LOCAL WEATHER STATIONS

EDINBURGH GOGARBANK (more up to date sunshine totals come from here)

Latitude: 55° 55' 40.8'' N (DMS) or 55.928° (Dec)

Longitude: 3° 20' 34.8'' W (DMS) or -3.343° (Dec)

Altitude: 57m above mean sea level

EDINBURGH AIRPORT (added as an additional backup)

Longitude: 3° 20' 40.92'' W (DMS) or -3.447° (Dec)

Altitude: 33m above mean sea level

ROYAL BOTANIC GARDENS, EDINBURGH (the closest station to where I live)

In the end, the ridiculously high total of 34.8 mm of rain fell at Edinburgh Gogarbank during yesterday along with 31.8 mm at the botanic gardens in Edinburgh where yesterday was the wettest day of this year so far as a result.

In addition to that, a total of 2.4 mm of rain has fallen during today so far at Edinburgh Gogarbank as at 7am this morning along with 3.8 mm at botanic gardens in Edinburgh which is at least, a lot more sensible although today is yet another day which has failed to stay completely dry.

For Edinburgh Gogarbank, that takes the total for this month so far to 110.0 mm, the total for this summer so far to 301.4 mm and the total for this year so far to 531.2 mm as at 7am this morning.

This means that just at least another 5 more official rain days need to occur at Edinburgh Gogarbank between now and the end of this month in order for this month to go down as being wetter than average there overall in terms of the number of official rain days.

This also means that just at least another 2 more official rain days need to occur at Edinburgh Gogarbank between now and the end of this month in order for this entire summer to go down as being wetter than average there overall in terms of the number of official rain days.

For the botanic gardens in Edinburgh, that takes the total for this month so far to 123.4 mm (which is now slightly more than twice the 1981-2010 August average for that particular station), the total for this summer so far to 296.0 mm and the total for this year so far to 510.0 mm as at 7am this morning.

This means that this month will now go down as being wetter than average overall at the botanic gardens in Edinburgh in terms of the number of official rain days if there any more rain days there between now and the end of this month.

Not only has more than 100 mm of rain fallen at both of those stations during this ridiculously wet month which we are currently experiencing, but we are now odds on to average more than 100 mm per month at both of those stations during what has been a very soggy summer overall. That indeed, has already happened at Edinburgh Gogarbank where two of the three months which make up this summer have delivered more than 100 mm of rain.

In addition to that, the outlook continues to look unsettled which means that there will be more rain to come but hopefully, we won't now be seeing anything like the ridiculous amounts of rain which we have been seeing just recently.

Think we are up to 55mm for the month but I've been so busy I'm not convinced of the accuracy.
