  1. I make that 8 hours of persistent snow here in Rayleigh, Essex now - incredible and it's getting heavier again! Currently 5cm has settled
  2. Grand total of 0.0mm in Rayleigh, Essex and no thunder but sky has a very weird yellow hue this morning..
  3. Goodness if that first graphic verifies Essex is in for a pasting! 64mm of rain in 3 hours :-O
  4. there was a very localised downpour that affected Hockley and Hawkwell as I drove through about 1.30 but Rayleigh was dry! Dinner outside tonight which is always good :-)
  5. 10.8mm in Rayleigh since 7pm and more to come - always amazes me how Essex develops a North / South split with its weather. Still remember the insane 100mm we had in 24 hours last August whilst Witham, Colchester etc remained almost bone dry!
  6. It's not an Oregon William, unless they build them for Watson.. Also Shoeburyness officially recorded 59.2 but BBC forecaster said on Breakfast news he expected some nearby towns got much more than that.. Only 3mm was added overnight which sounds about correct.
  7. Just had to take this for posterity! Still a number of roads flooded in the Rayleigh/Hockley area this morning
  8. Can't sleep because of more heavy rain - weather station up to 100.8mm in last 24h.
  9. Finally stopped in Rayleigh at 98.1mm - will be interesting to see the official totals tomorrow!
  10. Just shows how intense and narrow the torrential band was at lunchtime http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-essex-23826691
  11. 95.7mm on my station and its getting heavier again - lots of reports on Rayleigh facebook groups about houses along London Road and Downhall Park Way in Rayleigh being flooded and roads breaking up. Seems Rayleigh and Hockley have been worst hit.
  12. Doesn't surprise me - used to live near that bridge and have never seen it that bad.. My station has recorded 92.4mm so far and looking at some of the pictures coming in a few miles east/west of Rayleigh I don't think its far off.. We've been stuck under the main intense zone from around midday and it hasn't stopped at all.
  13. Just got this through from a friend - shows the bridge in Hockley under water! Easing a little - but now up to 87.3mm
  14. Yes William - now up to 86.4mm here since midnight.. We had 3mm when I got up at 7am but it's been torrential all afternoon. Southend and surrounding areas a no-go zone. Look at bbc.co.uk/travelnews/Essex to see what I mean. Not bad for the driest area of the UK!
  15. Have been posting in the SE Forum this afternoon - 78.3mm of rain so far in Rayleigh today & South Essex is turning into one huge flooded mess... Not one clap of thunder though
  16. 66.9 mm and still torrential - why the hell isn't South Essex under a red warning.
  17. 55.8mm in Rayleigh and still falling - Southend seafront flooded between the Pier and the Kursaal... Fear this will get quite serious soon..
  18. Well, woke up seeing 3mm on the weather station thinking "damp squib" - 10 hours later and it's now showing 31.5mm with more heavy rain pouring. Southend Vic - Liv St line is flooded at Prittlewell, A127 is closed near Basildon and Greensward Lane bridge at Hockley under water.... Biggest rain event here for a long time.
  19. And looking darker again! - Up to 26mm since midnight in Rayleigh now
