Is it me, or did she just leave the building?
Spent the weekend near Aldeburgh, biblical rain overnight on Friday, big waves crashing onto the beach on Saturday & the sea the colour of builders tea! Cleared up on Saturday afternoon but back to normal on Sunday. The sound of rain on a caravan roof is usually quite soporific but not when it hammers all flippin’ night!Posted 2 years ago

We had a month’s rain in one day on Friday alone.
what’s your point?
edit: average uk rainfall for July is something like 100mm*. that is a lot to fall in one day, i don’t remember Friday being particularly wet…?
(an event like that would usually make the news)

It’s demonstrably not
Very little rain fell over the UK during the first three weeks of the month. With dry ground and high temperatures, a number of wildfires were reported across southern England, including the London area. The prolonged heat led to numerous Heat-Health Watch warnings from 13th to 23rd, mainly across the South East.
Later in the month, the weather broke down with a lot of showery activity, some of it thundery, giving some very large rainfall totals over localised areas. On 23rd, lightning strikes disrupted train and tram services in Birmingham, Manchester and Edinburgh. There was flooding reported in parts of Nottinghamshire on the 23rd, around Glasgow on the 25th and West Yorkshire on the 30th.
This is the historic report for July 2013…Posted 2 years agobinnersSubscriber
The thing is, I don’t mind it feeling like January… if it is actually January. But we went out yesterday and up on the open exposed moorland it was truly horrible. You couldnt see a thing as it was like riding through a cloud, it was really windy, the rain was horizontal, but it was warm enough to ensure you were sweating your arse off in a waterproof. Horrible!Posted 2 years ago
