    44C well that it is warm for this area!

     

    Gloucester seems the place to be over the next hour or so as there seems to be some embedded cells in the approaching area of rainfall, that could prove interesting.

    Lively for some lucky folks today eh? :)Unexpected large raindrops falling here at the moment, I haven't seen any forecasts today, so I didn't know if any was due?!post-15177-0-97248200-1398121423_thumb.g

    Missed the storms yesterday, but a rather wet start this morning as their remnants have dipped south. A very mild start though, with temperatures at 10.3C @ 7am.

    Time to see how much energy there is in the atmosphere now the sun has broken through warmly after a wet then damp then dry/cloudy morning. It's been muggy all day so far but the cloud has only broken in the last hour, it certainly feels right for something to develop with humidity 96% and temp 15.8c.

     

    I was woken by a monsoon like downpour around 02.00 and reviewing the radar it's interesting to see how the rain developed from the East yesterday evening, edged very slowly South overnight, began to pivot and edge back North this morning before largely dying out quickly mid morning.

    Indeed Andy. Judging by the current radar there seems to be a pattern of shower pepping up over higher ground. Rain intensity heavier over Cornwall, Dartmoor and Exmoor and a little shower has grown a lot larger on crossing the Mendips, owing the black sky to my south. Really need the rest of this cloudy clag to shift and allow some sunshine through though.

    Well.. strange forecasts late last night, so far, way off the mark.

    The graphics showed rain coming in around lunchtime here, clearing by 5pm ish, instead, we had some rain from around 8:15am, but the last hour and a half has been dry. I do see more rain on the radar, but according to the BBC and MO app, it should be heavy rain from 11am until 7pm. Completely mad! ;)

    Currently bright and 11.5℃

    Forecasts on Sunday's Countryfile and Monday for today showed a pretty wet period, then yesterday morning the front was shown to be weak and sporadic/showery as it quickly decayed while heading East. By yesterday evening and this morning they had reverted to the pretty wet scenario. But so far what has actually happened is the weakening/sporadic and showery occurrence - so at least one model run was correct to call it happening like it has through the morning!

    I agree with that!Plenty of rain coming out of France, but with the gradual movement east, I don't know how much will make it here.post-15177-0-29915100-1398253412_thumb.g

    Not the rainy day I was expecting then, looks like it should miss me completely as it moves North & East.

    Stopped raining an hour ago, 7.6mm in total.

    The duration and timings were certainly sketchy!

    Next stop... weekend, hopefully lots of thunder showers. :)

    Well if you look at the radar play back for last 6 hours and then check regional forecast for today it really was badly forecasted today.

     

    Chilly and wet all afternoon according to forecast but I have not seen a drop all day, looks like it all went east for a nice change :rofl:

    Yes Artdemole a really fine day today after early low cloud/mist. Some lovely TCu all afternoon and I've just taken a few photos of what I think is a Circumzenithal Arc but it appears fainter on the picture than it was in reality.
