So what idiocy will we see today. Shorts and Tshirted hikers rescued from Snowdon. People being washed into the sea in Newquay whilst taking selfies.....with a dozen surfers in the backgroun

One hell of an atmospheric river of moisture upstream across the Atlantic all the way from Bahamas   Looks ominous and indeed models are indicating another wave of heavy rain to move in toni

Difficult to sleep here too. Usually benign Bedfordshire seems to have deteriorated in last hour. Wind has torn down more of my fencing and the gusts becoming quite scary with several loud bangs and crashes - not going out to look though! MetO have wind peaking at 03:00 so a few more hours of this.

Feeling sorry for the poor guys who've been trying to load up their band gear for the past hour from O2 Academy. Their box of stage equipment just got blown down the road!

I wonder if we might just get clipped by this squall line.

Defiantly heading this way, intensity dropping off on the line as it's heading east tho. Still should be some strong winds and driving rain as it passes through

Ouch that could be expensive.

Well I am in Nottingham and the last 4 hours have been quite biblical in terms of rainfall

loads of mini squalls and lines of convection dashing through

we are not far off an inch of rain in the last 4hrs 

I think there are going to be some places suffering severe flooding tomorrow ( or even at the moment )

You're right about the rain on that squall line - it hit us around an hour ago and brought some very heavy rain for a short time.  Winds weren't too bad though, not much stronger than what we'd been having since around 1am or so.

 

One other note about this weather - it's really warm at the moment.  I'm actually sweating with how clammy it feels.  Hopefully with that squall line blowin through it might herald a cooler airmass for us soon.

Another squall-line forming off the North Wales coastline up into Lancashire currently, not much in the way of gales overnight but the rain has been relentless against the window.

so i'm under a redwarning, 
- there is a picture on facebook about the floods in Pontypridd, they are reaching the windowsills of the properties along the river front..

weather wise, the rain is much colder now, I can see a small squall line forming over pembrokshire, these things are lethal since they are not moving laterally quickly enough
Another Squall line over North Wales looks very developed and quite severe , may'be it will form right the way to the South.. who knows.

The wind is howling here. It seems a lot worse than Storm Ciara last weekend. The rain seems to be getting heavier and we are still on Flood Alert.
