Caught a few flashes from the first cell of squally rain to pass over us in Weston-super-Mare, the wind was terrific, outdoing anything from the rest of the storm and most of Ciara too, very impressive.

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

Ditto, very strong gusts, the strongest of the past week, and some flashes of lightning, rumbles of thunder and hail to boot! Roll on Spring though.... I've had enough of this winter.

Four new severe flood warnings on the Rivers Steeping and Lymn in East Lincolnshire, bringing the current UK total to 8.

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

Perhaps this is for another thread but I’m hearing another storm could develop, called Storm Ellen? Does anyone have any further information on this? 

I saw something about another pair of Atlantic lows doing the same dance and then merging as happened with Dennis, think they mentioned Wednesday, but I haven't seen any details.

That site is exaggeration or scare mongering.

As I said upthread, until you get used the the automatic projections they can scare the beejeebers outa you!

Earlier in winter the temp station here in Mytholmroyd was giving a 5m surge on its projection...has a lot of folk spooked on the F.B. flood group for our area.... but then , once the rainfall rate decreased, the plot dropped back down to below flood levels?

Use them to check current river levels but use your own wisdom to see if the projection is to be trusted?

Yeah it was a over prediction, but its still one of the worst floods (not yet peaked) in Shrewsbury since 2000. Roads into and out of town now being flooded... defences holding up where they have been installed. If this was before the EA put in all the protection the town center would be totally cut off like the old days and there would be masses of proprty flooding. For all the crap the EA take when there are floods, once again the Shrewsbury Scheme has worked well again.

They work together before issuing the RAIN warnings, Env agencies share their flood forecasts and current water on the ground conditions, the Met Office share the forecast rainfall info. The warnigs are then issued to complement each other. 

Thanks. Just seen this.

 

Makes sense.

I’ve just missed a funnel cloud here in north west Wales. Family member called me after seeing it towards Caernarfon Bay and I only caught the end of it!

Storm Dennis, the second-strongest nontropical storm on record in the North Atlantic Ocean, caused widespread flooding across parts...

I hope everyone listens to the evacuation advise, and that vulnerable people who need help to move now, get the help they need. I also hope the barrier holds.

Those precipitation forecasts look very worrying but it’s impossible to ignore the rain shadows east of the Welsh mountains and east of the Pennines.

Yes Wales bearing the brunt  but  we all know that the rainwater from wales seeps into rivers such as the severn.   Flooding going to be worse around already flooded areas.

Apparently Shrewsbury town centre is practically an island at the minute. Even more rain on the Welsh hills in the coming few days is just going to exacerbated issues in those prone areas along the Wye, and the Severn to name just two.

Unfortunately this will be another winter that will be remembered for all the wrong reasons.
