    Bit weird actually,forecast of very heavy rain yesterday and today didn't really materialise,yes I know localised means just that.However seeing Mr Pantz comment about a microclimate its got me thinking.For years now so much precipitation,be it rain or snow,rarely either arrives at all,or if it does,not in the quantity.So with Salisbury Plain to the north of me,possibly some input of South Downs to the east of me,just wonder if microclimate might also be an issue here.Perhaps ive been unfair shaking my fist at the South Today forecasters after all lol.Thoughts anyone.

    Did you not get all that rain yesterday jy, at around 6ish? It smashed it down in Downton. The T&L moved off south towards Breamore.

    I was chatting to the chaps at Downton Brewery earlier... He said it was manic in Downton, but he left for Rockbourne at 6 and it was dry over there. Bonkers...

    It's chucking down now btw, but nothing like yesterday evening. Here's the proof. Four wet chickens...

    Bumped up a little now. 10mm yesterday, 10.6mm so far today. June stands at 25.8mm. The MetO regional average is 73.3mm.

    Finally scooped a downpour for 15 minutes this evening although the thundery activity had died out before it reached here, provided a further 7mm so my total has overtaken yours lol.

    I could see the CBs responsible late afternoon/early evening, they looked spectacular and textbook.

    yesterday was rather boring until the school run, and then BANG! At 3:30 we had an even bigger storm as I picked the kids up in Lytchett matravers. The place turned to rivers on the roads, unfortunately a couple of houses flooded due to the shear volume of water. But what a storm. Got some footage.

    I was wondering the same? Just a day ago they were saying (during the bouts of storms and heavy rain) the weekend will be dry and sunny. Sunny first thing here, now overcast. Tomorrow looks overcast from the get go, with drizzle/rain coming in during the afternoon. A bit disappointing really!

    Cloudy with As and some St. Temp 13C and a zephyr from the SSW. You can see the warm moist air on the Camborne 00z sounding and the passage of the front today.

    Well the rain has arrived, and it looks pretty set in from now on. I guess this wasn't a 'nice weekend' after all.

    Well it was crystal clear from 21.00 last evening until about 06.00 today which allowed for a clear, light, moonlit short night lol !!

    Vile out there this morning, so haven't bothered with the morning walk.

    We had a couple of hours of sunshine on Saturday evening, otherwise the 'decent'weekend wasn't all that. Played cricket at Beaulieu yesterday and spent 30 odd overs in the field under constant drizzle from around 4pm.

    Disgusting morning - may as well be December 20th if not for the temperature. We do of course have the odd day like this throughout the summer so I just hope the rest of this week is a vast improvement!

    I can't believe how much rain I've recorded since yesterday evening. I didn't see that one coming! I'll post the final figure when the front clears, suffice to say, it'll end up more in the past 24hrs than the prior 19 days of June put together lol
