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

Wasn't today supposed to be dry? Chucking it down!! ?

We've had around 6mm from the rain so far which has come in from the north sea. Not a huge amount, but given the situation in the Yorkshire area even small amounts are going to add to the ongoing issues.

Looking at the GFS it still shows a fairly unsettled week but luckily no sign of any really prolonged heavy rain so the flood level should slowly decline remaining see some snow and then the Peak District and perhaps at low levels with very very lucky.

Looking at the flood defenses round Meadow hell it looks like they build them too small and that lessons from 2007 haven't been learnt. No doubt some questions will be asked about this and the parties to plan this will be glad that the general election is on the way to public attention will be diverted. One wonders how long it will be before the next flood as we continue to build on floodplains failed to complete proper maintenance and basically cost cuts to make the budget ignoring the fact that long-term the cost will be greater.

I just got back from Sheffield yesterday in time before the flooding took control 

M1 north was horrendous. 

Up here in North Yorkshire looking forward to next Thursday's snow potential. 

My Subaru forester is ready too go too.

Had a look at the local park. The waters have long receded but you can see why it flooded. They had to take the top railings of the Culvert to allow the water to drain away. Further upstream you can see where neglect is made the anti-flood mechanisms pointless because they haven't simply been cleared out. Some pictures below. The Deborah's hat that has been brought down shows how powerful even small streams can get. It would help when felling trees and branches they will let fall into the stream. The waters from this stream were powerful enough to flood Chesterfield road and was down wooden fences on the other side of the road. Save

Well the weather front not behaving itself as it stands not enough rain to get worried about and hopefully the front will move away soon.

Two more Met Office warnings for more rainfall Monday into Tuesday and possibly Thursday. For once I hope their predictions are wrong. Many folk have more than enough to contend with without any more dirty water into their homes. I wonder when this monsoon like weather is going to end?

  • Risk of further heavy rain across areas which are experiencing ongoing flooding.

What to expect

  • There is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded, causing damage to some buildings
