Whether down to global warming, natural climate change or other factors, it is fair to say that the UK's weather can be unpredictable and severe. Over the past 10 years, the UK has experienced major flooding in 2004 (Boscastle), 2005 (Carlisle and Wales) and 2007 (SW of England), a tornado in 2005 (Birmingham), "freak" hailstorms in 2008 (Ottery St Mary), heavy snow storms in 2009/2010 (SE of England) and two of the rainiest years since 1910 (2010 and 2012).
