Ok, I have to reply to this because it's misleading the entire thread, iv studied radars and the weather all my life, the low pressure that formed along the south side of the main low is pushing east,

Nathan "not a weatherman" Rao of the Express says "Army on Standby as heaviest SNOWFALL hits in next 24 hours" What a bellend!

68 mm yesterday 14mm overnight the other week we had 226mm very wet summer... 

I'm assuming your total is midnight to midnight, Will, in which case you had about twice as much yesterday as we did down here at the southern end of the Peak District, also about twice as much as Buxton.

Indeed.... can’t believe how wet it’s been... hopefully some much needed drier weather sometime soon... ?☀️☀️☀️

Also, a good job the emergency services managed to get the level of  Toddbrooke reservoir well down before that lot came.

Got to getting on to record breaking amounts of rain. It’s been an awful summer.

I would think perhaps in the Glossop/ Whaley Bridge area the record summer rainfall could be under threat, if it hasn't already been broken, but it would take a very wet August to break the summer record further south in the Peak. Buxton's record is 549.6 mm in 1879 so they would need 205.4 mm in August to beat that. Here the record, since 1977, is 423.4mm in 2004 and August would need 143.9 mm for that record to fall.

So far this month Buxton has recorded 54.3 mm and I've recorded 35.8 mm ( both up to 0900 today ) so quite a long way to go.  I don't know how other areas of Derbyshire and Staffordshire are faring, perhaps someone else could come up with some figures?

I don’t have any figures for where I am as my station isn’t working. I just cannot ever remember seeing a summer as wet or miserable as this one, and the Met Office produced a graphic showing that Staffordshire and Derbyshire had already received more than the summer long term average by the end of July.

As an addition to the above, Birchinlee, the temporary village built to house the workers constructing the Derwent resevoir and a few miles to the east of Glossop, recorded 600.4 mm of rain in the summer of 1956. This summer was the wettest of the 20th century at Buxton with 509.4 mm. I would imagine if anyone with a rain gauge in the Glossop/Whaley Bridge area records much in excess of 600 mm this summer it's likely to be a good contender for the wettest on record in that area, at least as far back as 1900.

After a 15 minute deluge at 11am it's been a very nice summers day here. Some lovely spells of sunshine.

Sunny and warm here too, and yet Shefali just before 7pm on Midlands today was wearing a thick Winter coat.

I was still pottering about in the garden at 9pm in a t-shirt because it felt warm.

 

It's 13°C here outdoors and 23°C indoors.

Hi everyone,  new to this region as we have just moved from Bedfordshire to Kettering. 

Loving it already as the weather here is far more interesting than my home town!  We've had a couple of storms and very heavy downpours since we moved in two weeks ago. 

Currently tipping it down and 15c.
