Record wet week Oct 2013

Postby Angus Tyner » 2013 Oct 22, 21:00

Have just recorded my wettest 7 day period in my 13 year record in Ashford Co. Wicklow

Obs 09-09z
15th 23.6mm
16 15.1
17 0.3
18 39.6
19 6.7
20 6.3
21 11.2

Wettest 7 day periods (since May 2001)
102.8mm 21/10/13
100.7mm 22/01/13
100.3mm 31/12/02
99.5mm 26/10/02
98.8mm 23/05/02
98.3mm 05/02/09
96.9mm 25/11/12

Further heavy rain today with about 17mm from 2 thundery showers, max rain rate of 140mm/hr, the 2nd shower also exceeded 100mm/hr

And to put some spin to the figures, the 103mm nearly cancels out the rainfall deficit (compared to norm) of the past 6 months which was 107mm
