... Just been out to do an intermediate measure: intermittent slight rain set in here 31/1030Z, then became continuous slight by 1230Z, then mainly moderate (with strengthening wind) after 1330Z: at 31/1555Z rainfall from this event = 10.8 mm, making the monthly total = 237.1 mm, representing 279% of the eLTA 1981-2010 for this location. Garden lawn disappearing under largish puddles!

Rain started 0900z.
Dragged its heals with heavy then light drizzle but finished now. Light on western horizon at sunset with partial clearance.
Total 15.2 mm.

This means my total for the month (I measure to 1800z) is 198.7 mm.
Just missed the 200 mark but still a record for Jan here.
Previous was 176.2 in 1995.
Record starts in 1985.


Today
Max 10.7C
Min 1.1C

... update 31/1800Z: rainfall since 09Z now 16.9 mm. Models (GFS, E4) did a good job on this. Still raining steadily as I write this, though radarnet suggests it might not be too much longer before it decays.

19.0mm here for the event (2.6mm before 09:00, the remainder after).

The monthly total now 244mm, easily my wettest January (records start 1991)

Wettest Months in my 23 year record:-

296.0mm - November 2002
276.5mm - December 1999
270.4mm - November 2009
247.9mm - December 2002 (Nov-Dec 2002 - 2 mth record)
Then comes Jan 2014

More bands of showers to the west for tonight. My 'month' ends 09:00 on 1/2/14

... well, the rain finally petered out, though with a line-squall/heavy rain event 31/1900->1905Z and a hang-back of moderate rain thereafter: as of 31/2100Z, the total for the rain-day is now 21.8 mm, so the monthly total = 248.1 mm, representing 292% of the January eLTA 1981-2010.
