  1. Nice drop of rain this morning, left home in light rain, drove through heavy rain, to arrive in the office with a clear view out over the channel and some blue skies. All of which has gone down hill as I watched the passing band of rain from the west as it sped over Bmth, and now we are under the more light and general rain. Currently 11.9°C with a RH of 96%..

    No further rain this afternoon after that very heavy shower earlier. Dry and cloudy for the rest of the afternoon since then. 14.2°C 

    It missed you today, we were perfectly positioned for some decent rainfall, and it is still raining, so far 5.8mm 7.4mm with 2mm in the last hour, not that heavy just slow and progressive as the area of rain only slowly moves westwards..This little puppy has been sat over us for the last two hours or so...

    Lovely down at Southbourne.


    Here's the view towards home and the cell that prompted a trip to the beach.


    It's been one of those days that you can look to the 4 main compass points and see different cloud in each quadrant, was sat in the garden earlier watching the cell activity to the north for the last hour or so..Meanwhile here it's been a fine day and 19.6°C at: 15:20

    A nice drop of rain here. However, I noticed that my Davis gauge says 24mm. I checked the manual gauges, and they're both at 16mm, so I had to investigate.. I found a bunch of spiders using the rain tipper as a hammock and a huge network of webs connecting the tipper to the underside of the rain catchers. Needless to say, I handed them an eviction notice.

    Temp 13.4°C.

    I was wondering why you were so far ahead of me, considering we run the same equipment, and localisation the difference was quite large...

    I have to say, the models have been very consistent regarding rainfall totals for parts of our region. 20 to 30mm possible on Friday.

    Oh good, some decent rainfall at last, my plants are in need of some good rainfall to bring them on. I still think looking at the suggested forecast that the forward speed of the two rain fronts, the first with the heavy rain, and the second with more showers (but potentially heavy) is going to be the keep. The speed of transition right now looks relatively quick, but of course the intensity will also determine the amount. I think the commute tomorrow morning is going to be a challenge for some, glad I'm working from home tomorrow. Of course I am talking about my location, others such as Devon & Cornwall could well experience longer periods of rainfall, based on the suggested forecast as the front "arches" forwards..

    Some on here, myself included, have used this very good source of high resolution satellite images over the years. To keep this going free it seems it needs money putting into it.

    Hopefully we can keep this data available if we help with what we can afford.

    many thanks




    Not looking good John, have to say, I have made a donation, but the numbers are very low, I think put off in part by the suggested goal of £1M. Right now it's around £8K of a suggested £65K goal, so a really long way short.

  7. Morning All, welcome to summer...for those on here that like water sports, I've put a collection of water sports and weather info together which can be found here, enjoy and spread the word. If I could add anything then let me know..


    Meanwhile, it's a sunny 20.2°C so if it stays clear temperatures look set fair to rise some more yet, some early cirrus has cleared, now.
