Default Very wet

Already wettest day since August 2017 with 18.2 mm (since 11.40) and it's
still coming down heavily.
Totals will be very high if this continues into the night as the Met Office
are suggesting.

It's certainly very wet, Graham. It started a little later here, at
1145z (1245 BST). We've had 13 mm so far, including 8 mm in the past
hour. I'm glad we live up in the hills and not lower down where all of
this is inevitably ending up. There's not much wind but the direction
has been slowly backing for the past few hours and it's now coming from
due east. This suggests that the low centre will probably pass quite
close this evening and, as is currently forecast, will probably result
in the rain persisting for a good number of hours. Current (1518z) max
rainfall rate according to the AWS is 25 mm/hr.

Yes Norman so pleased about being on the higher ground, must be getting bad
lower down.
Hammering down now and up to 23.8 mm since 11.40

A different World here at Southend-on-Sea, albeit that may change over the next few days, a mere 5.6mm has fallen so far this September. Was scarifying a lawn yesterday morning and the dust coming up was quite choking. I dare say move on a month or two and they'll be under water.

You are right about a different world Keith, I've not seen rain like this
for a long time, up to 40.3m since 11.40 and still it pours.!!
My manual gauge is well into the overspill container
Starting to get very windy now too.

3.8 mm here so far this month though it is raining (lightly) at the
moment. The front lawn has gone partially brown again though over the
last week or so; there are dead patches that never recovered from the
June/July drought. I will have to re-seed those areas.

Soil moisture at 30 cm is now the same as at the end of July. It was
very windy, warm and sunny yesterday and the dust blowing around was
something you don't often see here in Blighty.

Looking at the rainfall radar, a possible 5+ mm to come.

I've noticed a few native trees are changing leaf colour. This is
unusually early, possibly the earliest I've ever known. Normally you
don't really start to see any autumnal colour until well into October.
Most of the photos I've taken over the last few years showing the autumn
colour at its best have been taken early to mid-November.

Very wet here Nick, it's been heavy much of the last 3 hours.

Also the strongest winds of the Autumn in west Cornwall, it really picked up after about 16:00. The 1st genuine gale, though only in the exposed spots, since the summer. Gusts widely 50mph, but away from the immediate coast generally F6-7 E.g. https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/...tion/gbukbmeyr
