South East and East Anglia Weather Discussion Sept 2020 onwards


Recommended Posts

Just driven from West Wickham to Home - M25 Orpington round just 1 junction to the A20 -

Worst driving conditions ever experienced, driving wind & heavy rain, aquaplaning & very low visibility.

Totally Awful.

36.3mm of rain here in the 24 hour period from midnight to midnight and already had 29.49mm on Thursday 1st. That’s almost the October average in the first two days of the month!

We’ve had another 4.1mm in the last 25mm since midnight! 
Edit: why does this never happen in the winter?! Perfect Channel low set up...would’ve been so much snow 🌨

Here's yesterday's (Fri) rainfall totals for the Region as calculated by the Netweather Extra hi res radar. Most areas to the south seeing at least an inch (25mm) of rain, but very little for most of East Anglia with my location seeing only 5.3mm according to my gauge.

And as for today (Sat) the heaviest rainfall looking to stay just to the west of the Region according to the Arome model. Nevertheless, a soggy morning in prospect before the rain band clears off to the NW this afternoon.

61mm Here since Midnight Thursday 1st - Thames Estuary doing its thang

Snap Paul got that exact total here in SE London. Incredible rain, never known anything like it. It’s been continuous here for over 24 hours now.

In my case 61mm since 6am Friday (yesterday) so that’s only 27 hours the Greenwich October average is 61.1mm. I don’t have any events comparable to this. I’m trying not to imagine if it was cold enough. 🙈😯

Well if it’s dry snow it would be over 20 inches easy! The track of low very unusual of that seems most ideal not getting north enough to bring mild sector to far south but fronts have extended considerably north. 
 

We want this again in January please!!

Front hanging on in the SE far longer than last nights Met office forecast predicted, I was a little shocked when they said today would be sunny and showery in the SE, never thought that looked hugely realistic apart from perhaps the very far SE as the fronts back edge looks fairly thin cloud wise. This is probably almost as far west as the main band will go. The eastern portion of the front may wel ebb and wane until the main band swings back eastwards as the LP pulls away over N.France and takes the front east over our neck of the woods again.

It's dry here has been since the drizzle cleared off a few hours ago. Looks like the sun is even trying, no wind about.

Been bright here for a good hour and a half but the rain comes back big time tonight with possibly an inch of rain from 10pm tonight till 10am tomorrow! If that happens we would have exceeded the monthly October average and it is only the 4th tomorrow 😂!,

Just looking at the radar and I don't think I've ever seen the UK bathed in rainfall from top to bottom as at the moment, currently (today) the south east has been relatively dry. Sign of the times...glum season in full swing!

Had just over 50mm since 11pm thursday so far and much more to come looks like we will probably have between 90-110mm altogether by the time it clears away tomorrow afternoon or evening. 

Took a few pictures and videos of a stream nearby earlier i suspect it will look a lot more active tomorrow.

Flooding west of London will certainly be an issue tomorrow daytime - with another 5-6cm of rain to fall...

Imagine how we felt then remember that parts of texas got 32 inches (81cm) of rain last year as a hurricane stalled out...
