Interview with Mrs Newell
Found this in a summary of the UK's weather in 1940.

July. Cool and very wet: the wettest of the century for Scotland. The 10th was a very wet day, with 25mm of rain widely, and over 50mm in places as far apart as Aberden and Berkshire; Scarborough recorded 106mm. Large hailstones at East Kirkby (Lincs.) smashed glass and flattened crops. On the 11th, 80mm more on the Brecon Beacons, and 90mm at Redcar on the 17th. Flooding in Cromarty on the 26th. The very end of the month wasn't quite as wet as the rest. The start of 11 consecutive colder-than-average months - the longest such run of the century.
