The floods engulfing towns and countryside across southern England could be severe enough to dent Britain's strong economic recovery in the first months of this year – but not enough to derail it.Although there is now momentum behind Britain's recovery, the last few years have shown how easily the economy's fortunes can be swayed by bouts of bad weather.The fourth quarter of 2012 was a case in point on how poor weather can dent the economy, which shrank 0.2 percent over the period.Economists polled by Reuters expect the economy will grow around 0.6 percent in each quarter from here to mid-2015, although that view may change.
