Being on the drier and sunnier East coast of Scotland, Angus has comparatively lower rainfall. We receive around 175 days of rain each year compared to 250 days a year in much of the Highlands.

The Angus Glens still attract snow and so there is an increased river flow when the snow melts in spring. And, sea fog from the North Sea, known as 'haar' often reaches far inland. We can already clearly see the effects of climate change in Scotland when we look at trends in temperature, rainfall and snow cover, higher river flows leading to flood risk and rising sea levels causing erosion.
