Default Heavy rain in south Wales

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.

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.

26.2 mm here Len for the last 24 hours. That's the greatest 24 hour
total this year beating 19.1 mm on the 1st July.

Monthly total now at 36.9 mm.

Yesterday's maximum temperature was 17.5C making it the lowest day
maximum since the 16th May (17.3C).

Thankfully the sun came out this afternoon and saved us from another
grim day.

I'm surprised you've not had a wetter day.
My wettest 09:00-09:00 days
13/11/02 84.5mm (near 200mm near St Ives. where there was severe flooding 1 month after the opening of the big flood prevention scheme - someone forgot to turn the pumps on - allegdly))
24/04/09 65.2mm
14/09/00 62.8mm
31/12/02 62.5mm

My wettest day ever was when I was in Wootton Bassett (promoted to Royal after I left) when 90.2mm fell in 2 hours. Now that was exciting.

Decent enough day here today, much less wind & dry (since 09:00) with sunny intervals. Temperature topped 20C after yesterdays 19.2C the lowest max of the month.

Final 09-09 figure for Llety Brongu was 84.0 mm. However there was another site about 3 km to the southwest of me (unsure of its name) that recorded 86.4 mm for the same period. This site looks to be near the top of the southwest-facing slopes of a 530-metre ridge, so it is no surprise that it recorded more than my valley bottom site. There appears to have been quite a large area (100 km^2 or so) that received 80 mm plus.
