Even 'nowcasting' is becoming particularly difficult, I thought this afternoon would brighten up along the NE coast as visible satellite showed clouds clearing out in the north sea but as they approached the coastline they quickly filled to produce non-stop rain, heavy at times. Just reached 25mm today bringing the total to 47.1mm with still plenty to come by the looks of the radar.

just biked home from uni - i can't remember the last time i biked on a sunday, monday and tuesday and got drenched everyday from the same weather front! flooding everywhere really, low level surface water stuff but still impressive nonetheless. My basement rose to 6 inches of water today, but we have since torn up the carpet (cost a bomb) and it is now draining away. incredible. well over 75mm here i am sure

NW 5min radar.

Yup truly awful conditions across the region this evening, flooded roads and homes etc really will go down as a month to remember when it's over I think. I can't remember the last time it poured with rain for hours on end like this to be fair.

Apparently Cleveland police have declared a major incident due to flood waters around 3-4ft high in the Middlesbrough/Stockton area too this evening.

Well Yesterdays rainfall came in at 46.5mm plus 15.5mm from the day before and light rain today adding another 5.6mm so far. So it makes it into the top 12 of heaviest rainfall since 1998. This beats the rainfall we had on June 25h 2007 which caused flooding in Sheffield. Of course the killer in that was the 123.5mm on the 14th plus rain in between the two dates.

Also demonstrates huge rainfall totals aren't as rare as made out by the media.

That's a hell of a mass of rain still hanging around the NE......I wonder if some places will hit 150mm before the end of this?

100+ mm of rain must be looking fairly likely now across a swathe of NE England down towards N Midlands and across to N Wales. NAE advertising another 25-30mm to fall across this portion of the country upto 12 midday tomorrow.

Pretty dire across the region as I said before, I feel so sorry for the people who have been flooded out of their homes across the UK - really put's it in to perspective when on a personal note I have gotten off lightly with just some travel disruption. Has anyone got any idea when this lump of rain is due to move from the NE region?

As the centre of this thing swings south-west, the North-West will likely see winds picking up I would have thought.

Very serious rainfall event over Northern England this afternoon and still it continues falling, The band is expanding and pivoting back towards the NW - rivers are running at the brim and won't be able to cope if that back of rain moves over the region. The models were on the money yesterday showing rainfall totals up to and over 100mm. Worrying times...

Unlikely the situation will ease much this evening to give any respite to those badly affected - Stay safe everyone.

Welcome Boris!!!

Low pressure currently centered around The Isle Of Man and in no particular

hurry to go anywhere fast.

Very poor conditions on the roads up here in Durham first thing this morning

which reminded me of the 28th of June although not as extreme as that day.

More heavy rain to come this evening and tonight which will add to

the flooding problems.
