  1. Torrential rain currently, not heard any thunder but then the roar of the rain may be drowning it out!
  2. Closing in on 50mm for the day, total now at 48.4mm and rising. Can't remember a day quite this wet for a while! And it looks like the pivot continues with more rain heading in from the west now.
  3. Up to 41.2mm for the day. Afrer a brief lull it is coming back again, not as heavy as earlier however, where my locale was under white echoes on the radar for about 2 hours!
  4. Had some torrential rain alternating with lighter spells. Had 38.0mm of rain so far, so soggy is an understatement!! To think this now after such a dry May.
  5. Had some torrential rain earlier where 9.0mm of rain fell in about 15 mins. The irony being that that was essentially the total for the whole of May!! Raining in torrents again now, at 24.4mm/hr, rainfall up to 15.4mm for the day and rising fast.
  6. Temperature reached the dizzy heights of 15.6°C here today. Customers into the shop were remarking how warm and sunny it was (I had no idea as work has no windows). Fast forward to this evening and we now have horizontal rain and a screaming gale. Oh how I love the UK's weather haha.
  7. Just had a heavy sleet shower here, temperature was 6°C before it, now dropped to 3.5°C. 13.0mm of rain fell overnight. This makes February's total at 124.8mm currently and a round 200.0mm for the year!
  8. Just had a snow shower pass through, nothing desperately heavy but nice to see. Possibly more incoming from the NW. Temperature hovering around 2°C, dew point 0°C.
  9. Just had some snow on the back edge of the shower cluster that went through. Temp fell to 2.8°C and it started off as sleet but turned to full on snow. Sadly only lasted a minute and a half but the first snow I have seen of the Winter haha.
  10. After some overnight showers it has been dry so far this morning, clouding over more now though. Mild, with the temperatures currently at 9.9°C.
  11. Another 15.4mm of rain here today. We are ok where I am but a lot of the villages in the area are having significant flooding issues. As per Mapantz's chart, I am indeed recording 968mb here currently.
  12. Can't believe how wet it has been today. A true deluge. Eased slightly at around 4pm but it is now tipping it down again with some bright echoes on the radar. Had 46.2mm of rain so far today, on top of the 26.2mm yesterday.
  13. Absolutely pouring again today after a less wet night. We are at 36.2mm of rain since 2.30pm yesterday, with some torrential rain looking like in the next couple of hours.
  14. Rain easing here in intensity now. Started raining proper at around 2.30pm, and since then, 26.2mm of rain has fallen.
  15. Got down to -1.8°C here last night and after dense fog persisted for much of the morning, the maximum for today was only 4.8°C. Back down to -1.4°C already, already lower than the minimum of 0°C forecast by the Met Office.
