I recorded 68.2 mm at my site in the 24 hours ending at 0900z. I wasn't the highest, though. A place called Llety Brongu (which is in the valley of the Llynfi river, near Maesteg - about 8 miles to the southwest of Ystrad) had recorded 75.0 mm up to 0700z. I don't know what their 09-09 total was, though, and have no other figures to hand.


Puts my 25.2mm into perspective!

Penzance A vastly better day - currently

Just a typical wet day here, Graham :-) I actually recorded more on 29th July - 69.8 mm. No real impacts here as it is a fairly normal total - the river rose about a metre for a short while.

Not that I'm used to it - having lived in the Shropshire/Powys rain shadow for the past 25 years.
