UK rainfall totals in 24 hours to 18.00 UTC on Friday

Tulloch Bridge and Strathallan 18 mm, Shap and Trawsgoed 19 mm, Lake
Vyrnwy 21 mm, Eskdalemuir and Bala 22 mm, Sennybridge and Liscombe 27
mm, Loch Glascarnoch 33 mm, Capel Curig 37 mm.

I'm a little surprised not to see any locations further south and east
in the list of wettest places. Here in my part of Surrey we had the most
prolonged really heavy rain that I've seen for a long time, which I
think lasted for at least four hours.

I've had a bit of a search, and found the following totals (highest to lowest) closest to Surrey:

Herstmonceux: 16 mm
Charlwood: 13 mm
Odiham: 13 mm
Thorney Island: 12 mm
Gravesend: 10 mm
South Farnborough: 10 mm
Heathrow: 8 mm
Shoreham: 7 mm

Maybe the heaviest rain fell in the gaps between these reporting stations?

148m AMSL for hourly reports (very few tweets getting through currently)
