• I thought that places that were in the tropical climates receive the most rain.
  • It's said to be, but to prove it isn't always wet have a look here:
  • I'm not sure if it is the wettest city in England, but if it is, it is most likely due to the frequency of weather fronts. As it is up north there is a higher frequency of weather fronts, as cold and warm air masses meet here. The prevailing wind is from the west and so fronts are blown onto the western coast of England, hitting places such as Manchester and depositing their rain.
  • Coming from the north of England myself I can tell you that Manchester is very wet and does indeed have the reputation of being the wettest city in England. There is an area of the M62 close to Manchester which is the highest point of any motorway in the UK and it is almost always wet up there.
  • No, according to research by the Met Office, Plymouth has the highest rainfall in England. Manchester is the ninth wettest city in the UK. Swansea (Wales) has the highest rainfall in the UK. See:
  • because every other football fan is peeing over the mancs!
  • i dont know but i live in Norwich east england and we one of the dryest cities
  • the highest rainfall is in the lake district s.w. cumbria to be exact and not plymouth or manchester.
  • Cos every time God looks at it he cries
  • I don't know, but I've been there many times when it's been boiling hot.
