    Well, we had lots of falling snow here in Stroud but not really settled at lower levels, slushy mess.  Took a walk up at about 215 meters and there is about 5cm, still a bit drippy lol. Nice to

    My goodness it is turbulent just ahead of the Cold Front.

    Rapid moving convective clouds racing S-N with sharp showers also moving S-N on the gusting wind at the same time as the front is moving W-E.

    I thought the wind would be the feature here, but winds haven't been as high as forecast. However, the rain has been relentless! 34.8mm so far. A lot of surface flooding out on the roads due to blocked drains.

    Same problem here Db. In fact, the last few weeks have seen a massive amount of it appear on my concrete areas. Not seen it that bad before!

    Yeah, I get it every winter, once the rainy season starts, but I REFUSE to use a jet washer as that takes the surface off the slabs, so I start with a good brush down, and then a dose of  a proprietary green algae removal liquid(which usually lasts 6 months) and let it dry before letting the dogs out in to the same area, probably a bit harsh for the nearby fish for you...

    Another 10.8mm of the crystal liquid, and looking to the west there appears to be some feisty (including lightning markers) heading in a NE direction, so possibly some more rain in a while, meanwhile "Surfs Up" and looking busy today...

    As that heavy rain cleared this morning I noticed castellanus clouds drifting south to north behind it.  Not seen them this late in the year before that I recall.

    Saw a window of opportunity to go for a walk, ventured out and within ten minutes it started to rain again so rushed back home. God this weather is tedious. Can't wait for the Atlantic to hit a block. A nice big frosty sunny high is what we need now!
