    Ive heard that Plymouth gets more rain then most parts of the UK, is this true? I went to the open day in June it was raining and one student said that it rains loads in Plymouth, is this true or just a myth?

    Yeah whenever I watch the weather it's usually that area that gets the rain, or milder weather.
    When i went for the open day it was a lovely sunny day though, so they can get some good weather.

    i don't think it rains more often, but when it does rain, it rains hard and its usually quite windy. In my experience anyway... But it was really nice a sunny from march onwards...

    On my open day to Plymouth it was very sunny. But weather is unpredictable and being near the sea, it's bound to be more windy

    As someone who is a top student at plymouth i can tell you that during a full moon and in the hours between 6am to 8am, Plymouth has 24 times the lesser variant of a rain shower than Kenya and Mexico combined.
