    The total rainfall from last nights storm in Gilesgate, Durham was 30.3mm. That broke a rainless period of 25 days since June 20th.

    Now got a direct hit. Middle of a thunderstorm in Durham with some lovely pink tinged lightning.

    Got deluged on the Western bypass around 1pm, but less than 2mm in Durham. Looks like it could rain again at the moment, but 2mm will make very little difference to deficits. The radar seems to route the rain to the West and East of Durham, but no direct hit.

    Drought - Summer - 2018?

    19 days since we last saw rain in Durham (apart from this morning’s light drizzle, which wasn’t measurable).

    A little light drizzle this morning, but not quantifiable, meaning no measurable rain for 19 days now. Seems like this will extend considerably as high pressure re-asserts itself.

    Some big storms brewing on the Pennines at the moment, heading East towards Durham Regatta

    The mean for the first half of May in Gilesgate, Durham is 13.7degC. That’s quite phenomenal.

    Just in excess of 25degC in Gilesgate today and yesterday. This is a couple of degrees higher than forecast.

    I had 26.2C in Gilesgate, Durham this afternoon, but not confident in it. Anyone else near Durham get anywhere near this?

    Our biggest problem at the moment is drifting snow. In exposed parts it’s about a foot deep across roads and pavements. There’s a 2ft drift outside our front door, with 2ft icicles hanging above the back door. Brutally cold too.

    Durham is getting a pasting. Horizontal powder blizzard for about the last 2 hours now. Drifting in the wind. I imagine it'll be like this most of the day. Had a meeting at 12 with a mate from Shildon, but that's cancelled as he's snowed in too.
