    Tumbling down is perhaps how I'd describe it here in the past half hour, current rate is 1.6 mm in 15 minutes.

    Just out of interest the official description of rainfall rates from UK Met is

    up to 0.5 mm per hour= slight

    below 3.9 mm=moderate

    above 3.9 mm=heavy

     

    my total today stands, at the moment, at 33.2 mm

    Yesterday morning was rather special on the North York Moors. We were the first ones out running on the old iron stone railway line at Rosedale Abbey around 9am. Clear blue skies, -2c and around

    Lovely up on the Wolds this lunchtime

    They are under a flood warning.

    Check your risk of flooding: get current flood warnings, river and sea levels, check the 5-day forecast or use flood risk maps

    While Meadowhall itself will have flood defences now (one would hope given the cost in 2007), the routes in and out are likely to be flooded. It does seem a decision made due to money rather than safety.

    It's not really there call.im sure they have been advised on the situation by local authorities.tbh would you be heading to there today given the conditions

    17 drops round Sheffield this morning. Never been so wet at work in my life, glad I was out of there by 11am as roads were already starting to flood.

    Back in virtually dry North Yorkshire but my first drop is at Meadowhall at 6am so hoping the area doesnt flood.

    That's not sheaf coming over though by the looks of it more a case of blocked drains on the surrounding hills. 2007 it didn't flood as the work done prevented it from overflowing however this was undone by the council not clearing the gulleys.There hasn't been any gulley clearing round here for ages so no surprises at the above.

    Yes, I meant to say By the Sheaf. There is a planned ed gully route for all drains by Sheffield Council. I know because I planned it! Just beacuse you dont see them doesnt mean it doesnt happen

    I can assure you they haven't done any round here. They've also stopped putting signs out so even if they do go out they just do the middle of the road. Back to bad all old ways unfortunatley..

    Stay safe everyone. I only have to make a short journey from work thankfully but seeing the live reports it is an increasingly serious situation for many commuters and home/business owners.

    Not surprised - was expecting this would be the case and has seemed obvious it would need to be all afternoon. Shame it wasn't cancelled earlier to give people more notice...

    Might wash some.of the dirt away ?

     

    In all seriousness it's not a good situation out there and could be really serious for the area for some time. Let's hope it improves quickly but not hopeful.

    After record rainfall totals here for October (over 6") .. I'm glad that so far we've missed the *heavy* prolonged
    rain today.  I can see on the radar I'm on the very north edge of that huge band of rain over the Humber.
    See what comes later.

    We've beat the Autumn 2000 rainfall total already here with 296.4mm so far making it the wettest Autumn since my records began in 1980. Over 290mm of that has fallen in the last 46 days. October was comfortably the wettest on record here in the last 40 years and locally since at least 1850.

    Like yourself we've been lucky today just on the northern edge of the band, though it appears to have pivoted northwards now so quite a wet night to come.

    If it gets to 80mm I may have to save the rain gauge. ?

    River Calder has burst it's banks in Mirfield. Some roads are blocked whilst others are drivable but won't be for long (for those that know the area, Newgate under the rail bridge is almost impassable).

    I was thinking the same thing. 4:55pm is woefully late to cancel. The right decision yes but what did they expect to happen this afternoon? It has been in every forecast, every warning that this rain was set in for the day (and much of the night).
