Relief rainfall

why is the west of Britain wetter
Question asked by: roxy2727

Asked on: 18 May 2008

The West of Britain is wetter due to its location on the globe and the fact that it is right next to a large ocean.

The currents and winds will tend to blow and get clouds created over the extent of the ocean, which when they hit land at the west of Britain are likely to fall as rain, this often has blown out by the time it moves further across the country.
