Rainfall totals by day

Recommended Posts

Hello.

 

Where can I find rainfall totals for a particular day for a specific location?

 

Thanks.

Best thing to do is Look on Weather underground.  , Pick a weather station the look at it history. Some stations have a few years  of data.

As long as you take account that some stations on Wunderground are not very accurate (some don't even show rain) then that is an option.

 

If you know a nearby official station name you can look it up here http://www.ogimet.com/indicativos.phtml.en

 

and then type the WMO index in here if you wish to view before the last 30 days http://www.ogimet.com/gsynres.phtml.en

 

Alternatively sites like http://en.tutiempo.net/climate/united-kingdom.html have data for lots of 'official' UK stations that goes further back in time (though a lot have patchy data or are now closed), many of which have precipitation data.

 

Of course a drawback is precipitation totals can differ from the nearest official site, particularly on showery/convective days.

Netweather has daily high-resolution precipitation total maps estimated from radar,  though that requires at least a radar subscription.
