27mm of rain so far today here in Reading. Just short of my all time record for 24 hours, but I've only had the station since last July!

 

Rates have been steady between 6 and 7mm per hour for past couple of hours.

Here in Tunbridge Wells I have had just over 40 cm so far today.

It really has pretty much been consistent rain all day, with some heavier burst at times.

Here's a snapshot of 24 accumulations. Although, it cannot pinpoint areas that have received more. For example, I can see on certain stations around NW Kent and parts of Surrey in excess of 45mm since midnight. ☂️

I can confirm it's been solid monsoon for hours. Only just letting up now, but only 2 cracks of thunder.

I haven't been here for what feels like donkeys years. But the rain has brought me back!

 

Wow! The rain has been relentless in Kingston. Took ages to get home due to the path exploding outside Primark. Something to do with electrics. The same has happened in Epsom too. What's that all about?

Just think, this time last year. Twas glorious...

I would guess there was damage to the underground cables - all was ok when ground was dry - now its had some heavy rain, it's got down to where the damage was and caused a short circuit - causing the moisture to turn to steam as it heats - if if happens quickly enough it then causes the cable to fail.   It's quite an experience when it happens nearby - ground shaking.    We had a problem here in the 90s after cable tv was installed and they damaged the power cables, nothing happened until it rained then smoke / flames and ground shaking happened several times - and continued happening each time it rained until the length of damaged cable was replace.
