Mondays weather warnings

(36 Posts)

met office lots of rain, gales in the SE

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.

You are soo damn good at this!

I think you should have your own channel and dress allowance from MN.

Thankyou - am duly warned.

Thanks OYBBK. You are fab.

BTW I started a thread for you some weeks ago but you were on hols so missed it.

Was just wanting some weather advice on where you would venture for a weekend away over next few weeks (based purely on weather). Still not been.

smile thanks guys! I do enjoy it. Will come back to you OOMTCO.
Sadly my paying job calls. Back later.

Thank you smile

I'm liking Netweather's forecast for today; it's a Really Minging Monday according to them!

My weather station says we've had 24.9mm of rain in the last 24 hours shock 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!

Any idea how East Anglia is looking for Sunday please?

lots of flooding on the news and more to come unfortunately.
Hell will have to check tomorrow or perhaps later I'm afraid. Shocker of a day today! Brain fried.

If you are in an amber warning area please take it seriously. Flooding risk looks nasty.

Hell, just had a quick look. It looks ok at the moment on GFS dry and quite warm but rain does look to move in in the evening so that needs watching closely. Tis a fair way off in forecasting land.

What's it like in other parts of the uk?

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 grin. Waves looked huge on the Forth at high tide today.....Think we're getting it properly tomorrow.

Looks like it lablover.

Gloria, that's v. Similar rain totals to mine.

warnings still a lot of rain in the Manchester across to Middlesbrough band I'm afraid. More wet and windy weather tonight.

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.

Am flying back into Manchester this afternoon and I'm terrified a bit nervous! What are the chances of making it in one piece?!

Still looking nasty on the radar this afternoon for the Manchester/Middlesbrough band with the low pressure just sitting there and the rain band pivoting.

Married, I'm sure your flight was oksmile how wet is it there?

Very wet in Manchester! I just helped out on a welly walk at school, and had to come home to get changed.

The rain is going from a steady downpour to heavy blustery squalls.

Lying water everywhere but no flooding in out area - we are not prone to flooding though.

Thank you, that'll put her mind at rest for now.

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.

Some photos of the flooding. And more of a fun thing ~ a foam covered dogwalk in Aberdeen!

That foam is very very cool - a giant foam party!!!

Lots of overflowing rivers in Cumbria.

Still horrible here, DH has gone to the League Cup game, but I made DS1 stay at home.

The rain has actually got heavier in the last half hour, and Manky Cat obviously thinks its my fault. hmm

Soggy start to the day here but it seems to have cleared for the moment. Phew!
Still some warnings around for today.

Still raining here, but only lightly, so not so bad really!

Beautiful day here in Fife now - started off with torrential rain and a spectacular thunder and lightening storm at 6am but since about 10 it's been lovely and sunny. I've got two loads of washing dried on the line hooray!!

thats ace piffpaff smile

quite shocking flooding problems the appartment block is close to collapse shock

How's it shaping up for the weekend? Or is it still too soon to tell?

I'm meant to be going to Yorkshire - not looking too good at the moment. Any chance of improvement?

At the moment Saturday looks pretty dry with some showers in Scotland. Sunday looks like wet weather will move south, so not such a great day in Yorkshire.
SE should hopefully stay dry all day long.

Thanks. My interest is I suppose quite selfish as a visitor. The people who live there will be glad of the dry days.
