Abstract

The spatial patterns of precipitation variability over the UK are examined for the period 1861-1970 using principal components analysis. Most of the variance (around 50%) is explained by the first component, which is characterized by uniform variability over the whole region. Higher-order components isolate differential variability between different regions.
