I wouldn't be too sure, the daily amounts I'm sure will cause some grief by the weekend.

certainly would be nice if the 12z gfs verified, but either way this years xmas day weather is far from certain and anyone touting mild with any kind of certainty is talking out their backside lol

The next few days of model watching will be very interesting indeed and I wonder if the ecm later will backup the latest gfs run, I can imagine what the mod thread would be like if it does!

I wish I took a picture of the river I was working next to today. Water still must of been only inches from the top of its banks and you can still see large areas of water covering surrounding fields. Looks like the upcoming rain over the next few days will mean flooding for that area....

Correct - impact-based matrix used for current warning criteria and concern for Somerset shouldn't be underestimated but we will await developments and amendments to warnings into tomorrow. Some worrying totals especially on the (uncertain) wave development tomorrow evening / night.

Thanks for the updates Ian, it sounds like a very fluid situation, rivers in the area are still only just below bursting point. It's ging to be a very interesting 48 hours with more expected over the weekend.

Flood alerts issued for Weymouth rivers, I guess if the rain totals are as forecast then the other Dorset rivers will be included.

The river cerne been cleaned out of all the debris over last few days,which will help a little,But river still very high and fast. Parts of the Frome still very high and some water still on fields, Be interested to hear the state of river Brit? Remember before flood defence work. Bridport got flooding, Around where Morrisons is now would get rather bad at times. Remember some flooding of River Wey, around Upwey area by the ford?

Still getting colder at 0.9c and it's quite frosty now, certainly wasn't expecting this.

What chance of the LOW attacking at a different angle * to engage the continental air a little more and bring wintriness?

* = I know it won't but what's wrong with a little fantasy lol !

Excluding local variances, not too far off the mark really.

No, you're right from that chart. The trouble with my location is the forecast temperatures are always based on Portland so are always several degrees higher than they actually are. Very annoying at times.

Just checked my forecast temperature on Netweather as 9 degrees, it's actually 3 outside. The met office used to be as bad but have improved lately.
