The wind is neither strong enough nor the rain heavy enough... the local scrotes are letting off fireworks!😡

On its way Pete. If the little darlings are still out later on they're going to get a soaking.

I'm right under that bright red will be passing 150mm the month to date which is just phenomenal here!

It seems pretty wild out there, some of my husbands family are travelling down from Woking for a half term family holiday to Camber Sands, hope they have wet weather gear and a canoe they’re going need it me thinks! 
on another matter @Blessed Weather I noted your mushroom pics a few pages back. We were away in Northumberland last week and we saw some amazing fungi, this cascade of them in a tree stump, and a bright red variety! 😀

How are you posting your charts as I’m really struggling at the moment to post them ?

Currently on Bexhill beach, on the bulverhythe link path. Wind is definitely gale force now, hard to stand up properly!

It's like that outside my house, and I'm a couple of miles in land from the coast. It's probably the hill.

MetOffice warning went out a little bit late today didn't it?! 

A short period of very heavy rain and gusty winds will make for difficult travel and temporary flooding of some roads

Hi Mark. I always right click on charts or the Netwx radar, etc, and save the image to a folder on my laptop. Then click on "Choose files" when making a post to upload the image(s). Put the cursor where you want the image to appear within your post and click on the + sign on the uploaded image and it will be placed in your post. If you want to, pop over to the forum update thread in the Help & Support area and describe your problem. Paul will give you an answer. 👍

Snap!...there was me thinking it would be a quiet fireworks spell due to being no organised parties but I'm starting to think the opposite now. How bad does the weather have to be so that the scrotes don't let off random bangers (and this was happening last weekend as well), my dogs are already cowering.

what a nice squall, it was like a tropical storm actually hit here with the heavy rain bashing every thing it touched and the winds swaying all over the place. Too bad its dark so recording wise was difficult but I know other members here know what im on about with the conditions.

The rain was coming down at a rate of just over 50mm per hour around midnight, which gave 23mm in half an hour. 
 

Unfortunately, the direction of the wind and the ferocity of the squall means we now have an indoor water feature in the (rubbish old) conservatory. Everything is now in the middle or in the living room!

Haven't seen such strength on a squall like that in a good few years. I'd say Jan 2014 is probably the last time.

The normally sheltered part here was getting battered like no tomorrow. My neighbour's had a bit of damage unfortunately to his greenhouse. It must of been gusting easily 30 mph at the front of the house here. 

Video of just near the end of the squall is attached.
