The amount of rain as measured by our rain gauge makes today the wettest day since our record began over twenty years ago! Today we had 37mm of rain over the 24 hours ending at 18:00. That is some rain fall, for just past mid summer!

This is obviously a year for smashing records, the rainfall record that I posted in July has just been exceeded. This morning when I did the 09:00 readings the rain gauge had 48mm in, but as we only keep a 24 hour rainfall record, so I had to wait until 18:00 for the full 24 reading. That was a staggering 55mm! Let’s hope that the rest of the month is dry.

This year is definitely one for meteorological record breaking; we have again broken our rainfall record, the rain gauge on Friday 12th had 56mm in. That is only 1mm more than the last record, but with all the rainfall we have had this year it all adds up to a lot of water!
