rainfall bar chart


We can see that the blue lines represent the rainfall in Rome and the orange lines represent the rainfall in London.

We need to look at the vertical y-axis on the left to determine the amount of rainfall.



In January, is the rainfall higher in London or Rome?





We can see that the orange line is higher in London at around 59 mm, whereas the blue line is lower at around 49 mm.
