It's all kicking off out there again.

 

I'm going to be an expert fence panel fixer by the time this winter is out.

In Exeter the river levels are very high now and although they will probably go down slightly tonight, the rainfall tomorrow could prove very problematic. http://www.environment-agency.gov.uk/homeandleisure/floods/riverlevels/120726.aspx?stationId=3262

 

I walked along a 4-5 mile stretch of the river and I was quite astonished at how much even the wider sections of the Exe have flooded, with areas like the Quay and the railway line upstream of St. David's now especially vulnerable.

Hamworthy Park completely flooded, but I didn't get a photo of it, plenty on the Bournemouth Echo website.

I wonder if the picturesque Devonshire town of Dawlish will still be on the map next week;

It might not seem like it but as mentioned by others elsewhere there should be some sort of lull due over the coming hours and then by morning its a case of de ja vu. 14.0mm today in Newbury from the rain bands and passing showers. 29.8mm for February now with over 200mm being the annual figure, which is much lower than other places in this region.

Very high river levels in Taunton also, and as Joe said, although it will drop tonight, the rain tomorrow could cause large problems with the river being so high;

Edit: I should add, this is the bridge going over the tone in the centre of town, so if it floods here, it could cause havoc!

Some of those photos are terrifying. And there is still no immediate sign of a break. I cannot wait for this wretched winter to end.

Latest EURO4 output has some better news for Somerset and environs tomorrow.

48hr accumulative rainfall chart (ie up until midday Friday, so well before the weekends shinnanigands), forecasting a notable "drier" slot over the Somerset, North Dorset, Mendips area, with minimal accumulative rainfall;

Not such good news for Devon & Cornwall though with another dose of more noticeable rainfall likely.

The NMM has other ideas about that :lol:

Ian F did say there would be warning upgrades for west country and up popped the ambers!

Not all of the west country is under an amber warning.

I know, but the the models were showing Thurs/Fri to be wettest from the IoW and east to begin with, as the week progressed, it moved further west.post-15177-0-42403000-1391623888_thumb.pThe 12Z has moved it further again, bear in mind they're only guides to where the heaviest rain will be during Thurs/Fri.post-15177-0-81778300-1391623895_thumb.p

I thought that Somerset was due for more rain on Thursday evening/night??

That's the point. Some models, as Mapantz has posted above paint another wet story Thurs night, and some models as I've posted above, paint a less wet picture with lighter rainfall.It's therefore possible that Somerset and environs could escape with little rainfall tomorrow night if certain forecast models verify.Nothing dry though, which is what's really needed.

With Air Pressure remaining low over the coming days nearly all areas will be affected by some rain at times, just how much is unlikely to be confirmed until assessing the latest satellite and radar imagery at the time or by following the constantly updated media forecasts. No prolonged dry weather on offer remains the main headline and today's rainfall is unlikely to filter down into the river systems until 24 to 36 hours after the event I would imagine. Of note, parts of central Wales have seemingly received a lot of rainfall today so just which locations that will impact downstream remains to be seen as well. All IMHO of course. Posted Image
