Although a large proportion of flooding occurs in winter, flood events in summer are becoming increasingly common. This is most often due to large volumes of rain falling in over a short period of time, such as during thunderstorms, which are more likely to happen in the warmer months. As a result of climate change, the UK has experienced a marked increase in intense summer downpours, leading to localised flash flooding in many areas. This is particularly an issue for urban populations, where drainage systems can become overwhelmed with less open ground and fewer gardens for water runoff.
