An unsettled and wet couple of days (monthly total now stands just short of 80 mm), and it looks as if the theme will continue. Currently there is slight rain, overcast skies, good visibility and a F3 southerly breeze.

Wow, 80mm - that's our normal for the whole month!
Just 7mm over here in the rain shadow, Freddie, and 4mm of that fell yesterday.

Yes, I lived in the Shropshire rain shadow for 25 years so these monthly totals take a bit of getting used to. ELTA for here for November is 250 mm - which would take 4 months to achieve in Shropshire! Current total for this year so far since 8/3/18 is 1150 mm. I've never recorded 1150 mm in a whole year, let alone in 8 months. This is a dry year, too. It doesn't feel like a particularly wet place, with number of wet days in a month not much more than in Shropshire - but when it rains, it rains :-)

[OT].......and at what's usually one of the very dry spots of the world
I see that Bahrain had 19.9 mm in October, including 11.6 mm on the
22nd. The October average there is 0.5 mm and the previous highest
October total was 8.9 mm in 1969. Interesting times :-)

81.8mm in Penzance up to 09:00 today, very little since. Spent the day watching the very dark skies just to the west where it's been very wet indeed (mostly over the sea).

71mm in Camborne so far.
