What I don't understand is how the Raintoday website is showing that it should have been raining in my area from about 8.45pm
which it wasn't, it only started about 30minutes ago, at about 10pm.?
The latest precips does not look big and would clear away here very soon. Can't see it lasting for 2 days which is very rare to get it in the winter months.
Only 9ºC in Birmingham on Sunday with heavy rain according to the Met Office forecast.
Well yet another forecast gone tits up down here already, the "heavy rain" predicted for SUNDAY has passed through already giving the grand total of 0.02 inches a day early! Forecast now mainly dry for sunday. I bet those people that rely on accuracy for planning and business are far from impressed.
i would not write off the rainfall in the far south just yet . it is a developing situation. heavy storms crossing the channel now
Well no further rain since 2050 yesterday (just 0.02 inch) so i have to stand by my quote yesterday
you are quite right . i thought more rain might develop. the rain band is way further north than predicted and narrower too.not the most accurate of forecasts.
What is your location PFCSCOTTY?
Yes it moved away here around 2am so realliy a wrong forecast both from models and TV forecast.
just seen the bbc forecast and he was showing rain clearly where it is not raining so i think they have got in a muddle though they wont mind as it has cleared up in london .
Here's the incredibly detailed NW forecast. I'll discuss it in the summer thread.
It's 15.4°C in Pompey and there's some sunshine to be enojoyed
Sorry Marigold, located on the south coast a couple of miles from Lee On the Solent (opposite the Isle of Wight) where the temp is now 18C and the sun is out!
Rainfall today: Nil
Rainfall in last ten days: 0.02 inches
It's fair to say the models have had a bit of a bad day today - not quite what was forecast even as late as yesterday across many southern areas.
BBC weather; the best day tomorrow otherwise wet for the rest of the week with bands of rain and heavy downpours.
Rain advancing ?quicker than expected already into Devon, will the met office get caught out after predicting a dry morning in southern England and London?
Bloody hope not! I've got car boot sales to go to!
They cancelled it for here in Hook Road Arena this morning and it was a ruined opportunity to go there on a Monday as they do on Sunday mornings which I started last week, it a bit hectic since I have to leave the flat very early to drop by at my dad home and then go to car boot sales. If wasn't cancelled I would able to go this morning direct from my dad home.
Most areas will see outbreaks of rain and perhaps some strong winds during Saturday, but then a brief drier and brighter period is likely to follow for Sunday in some parts. Thereafter, unsettled conditions are likely to continue, giving a mixture of bright spells and showers with some longer outbreaks of rain at times. Some of the showers are likely to be heavy with hail and thunder possible, especially towards southern and eastern areas. Rather windy at first, but as winds ease towards the start of next week, showers may become slow moving, giving a risk of locally very high rainfall totals. Towards mid-June, there are some indications of slightly less unsettled weather, especially for southern parts. Temperatures continuing around normal, or occasionally below normal especially during the wetter spells.

Indications suggest that conditions may continue rather unsettled at first with showers or more persistent rain at times, interspersed with drier and brighter interludes. Towards the end of the month, there are signs that these drier and brighter periods may become more prolonged, especially in the south, with temperatures recovering to more typical values for June."
