Some very high rainfall totals could be seen across much of the country though it will get drier in parts of the south. NE England and Scotland should also be aware that they may get gales, perhaps severe but the strongest winds at the moment I think will be in the SE and may touch 70mph in coastal areas. Met office are saying 50-60mph even in inland which given the trees being in full leaf still may well lead to disruption at around school pick up time. Take care.
My weather station says we've had 24.9mm of rain in the last 24 hours I didn't take the children's wellies when we did the school run this morning but as this looks like it's going to continue, methinks I'll look them out for this afternoon!
For us, I don't think this system was as bad as the 24 hours of rain we had back in June/July but there were still some pretty big puddles about. The rain started tailing off just in time for the school run this afternoon. By that time, my weather station was saying that we'd had just over 31mm of rain in 24 hours.
Strange having it windy from the East/North East. With last winter still fairly fresh in my mind, the wind's not very bad.....quite breezy at 45mph gusts. And wet.....need a weather station with a rain gague.....but it's all sidey-ways rain . Waves looked huge on the Forth at high tide today.....Think we're getting it properly tomorrow.
Very very windy in W Fife, coming from NE I think. We're in a very exposed position (Hurricane bawbag last year caused quite a bit of damage to roof and garden) but so far it all looks fine. Not raining here, but was torrential lat night.
You are welcome. Some reports of nasty flooding for people. Fraid theres lots more rain for some tonight. Easist way is to look at the warnings page where the amber area has been extended until the end of the night.
