These I just took of the storm that just came over frome about 20 mins ago  looks like more to come     

This was sent by a friend heading to Wotton u Edge this morning. VID-20191114-WA0000.mp4

Decided to pop down to Mudeford quay  to enjoy this beautiful evening!  Took my camera along and was treated to the amazing display of noctilucent clouds, obviously others have posted about them alrea

36.5mm to 09.00GMT.  Month's total so far 110.6mm.  First month of any name with more than one day 25+mm since January 2014.  Currently not raining and there's a bit of blue showing.

Goodness, mapantz!  I thought we'd had a lot.

25 mm  rain so far today. A few rumbles of thunder at 8.45 am. 

Is that from midnight, Mike or from 09.00GMT yesterday?

Was a loud night for sleeping with lots of heavy pulses of rain. Total since midnight is 33.7mm here.

Currently in another downpour and have heard a few rumbles in the past 10 minutes.

16.2°C

Woohoo! Thunder!

Horrible day though.

The pupils at my wife’s school enjoyed it!

That’s remarkable when you consider how dry the month has been until the last few days.

34mm here from early afternoon yesterday until 10.00 today.

Remember we had that little low that made a nuisance of itself on the 9th and dumped 45.7mm on us.  So two days have so far contributed 75% of the month's rainfall.

Very heavy rain that lasted quite a while this morning but didn’t hear any thunder. 25mm since midnight, 34.6mm in the last 24 hours. 

Sunny at the moment with blue skies  18.6°C

Thundery rain this morning has now ended. Total rainfall since midnight is 34.9mm of rain, which makes this the wettest day since February earlier this year! Really does highlight the lack of rainfall overall in the last few months.

24 hour rainfall is 41.5mm, not seen this for a while either!

Currently sunny and 18.2°C

No showers here since this mornings deluge. I wonder if I can obtain a new daily rain record with the rain moving this way? 34.2mm to beat on this station. My all time record was in excess of 50mm back in 2012 on a different weather station.

Just found it..

A very wet second half of yesterday and especially overnight. 36.1 mm from that lot, and then some lively showers through today, with a few periods of sunshine. Gusty winds at times too. The next batch of rain is just about here!

Still a tad shy of the 300+ mm 24 hr rainfall in Martinstown back in the 1950s! I would have loved to have experienced that day, I think it was before Global Warming really kicked in so I suppose on a weighted equivalent we should now be looking for daily figures of 400mm to 500mm to give an equivalent record.

Hi egret.

Yes. That record stood for a very long time, a slightly unusual one for the location, I would have thought?

I remember my Dad telling me about that record when I was little. I always thought the same as you regarding experiencing it.

Hi Mapantz

Yes, if you haven't visited the village pub in Martinstown it is worth the price of a pint just to read the newspaper cuttings and see the photos on the wall. Fortunately the valley isn't steep so they did not have the torrents that occur in Devon and Cumbria.
