North West Regional Discussion 30 Jan 2019 onwards

Recommended Posts

Peak district taking a lot of oomph out of these showers as they pass over here... just a spell of moderate rain but no thunder and the radar shows the heavy dark echoes subsiding alot once they get over the hills to the east...completely the opposite to Sunday's rain which fed the moisture and kept in situ for much of the day....bit more lively further north.

Not heard any thunder at all today. Bit disappointed given the bullish warnings online & on TV. We seem to do much better when they're not expected 😂

Seems most of the North West t storms have been over sparsely populated  areas , ie the Irish sea , or northernmost moorlands , 

While Gtr Manchester, Merseyside etc not getting much thunder wise,  just moderate sporadic rain this afternoon

Been lashing down for the last 2 hours here and no sign of it stopping soon, probably another 50 mm including yesterdays rain to go with all we had at the weekend.

When I used to live in Congleton, the river Dane used to flood in various parts of the town, is the river posing any threats yet?

Well another day, another promise of thundery activity- reading the BBC text at any rate i won't hold my breath though!

The showery regime is set to continue with the risk of heavy downpours, frequent lightning, hail and gusty winds. Showery activity will tend to be generally be widespread.

I would take the BBC's warnings with a pinch of salt, as they had my area set out for 11 hours of potential thundery activity, and all that happened was that the time frame was constantly reduced, so the result was zero, other than 8 hours of rain.

Been mainly dry here over the past couple of days. Nothing like forecast at all. Think we've been quite lucky after the weekend deluge!

Showers much more frequent and 'Torrential' at times here today, now the low has passed by too the north east switching the winds round to the west and we don't have the Peak district hills in the way from a south easterly... still no thunder...but plenty of rain.

Never seen the Goyt flowing through Whaley Bridge as high as it's been today in all 29 years of living here with some businesses and homes affected. The Goytside Farm river-levels near New Mills show the Goyt has overtopped it's previous record high by just under a meter, and there's still a 12hr lapse to wait for run-off from the hills to make it's way down.
