UK weather alert Odds slashed on February to be “wettest month ever”


As Britain braces itself for more stormy weather, bookmakers Coral has already cut its odds that February will be the wettest month of the year.

Incredibly, it is even money that this month will be the wettest February ever.

Punters can place bets at 5-2 that February will be the wettest month of 2016, with one week of the month left.

Others can hit their high street to place 8-1 bets that 2016 is the wettest year in British history.

Nicola McGeady, spokeswoman for Coral, said: “The wild forecast has led to a flood of bets on a record-breaking month of rainfall.

“Some punters are even convinced that 2016 will see more rain than any other year.”
