Nature redressing the balance. 70 mm so far this month.. we only had 61mm in June,18 mm in July and 33mm in August. Could end up being a wet soggy month.

The lawns round here are lush and green again despite being parched to the point of bare earth by the end of July. It's basically impossible to kill grass through drought, it just goes dormant. It's only if the roots get physically destroyed by too much traffic over the dusty soil.


26mm so far today and plenty more to come from these intense showers. Up to 49mm for September already which accounts for about 17% of the annual rainfall so far this year, in 8 days.

I've often noticed a fairly big difference in your and SpeckledJims (Thorner) totals compared to me and Tim A who are both in Leeds 16. It's surprising what difference just a few miles further east seems to make.

That makes yesterday the wettest day this year so far at the botanic gardens in Edinburgh, and light rain is still falling here at times as I write.

Yes, and I can confirm that according to SEPA, there was a total of 43.4 mm of rain at Comiston since 10am (09:00 UTC) yesterday as at 8am (07:00 UTC) this morning and as it is still raining here as I write, the actual total might actually be slightly higher than that just now.


That is about twice as high as the figures which I have just reported for here in the north of Edinburgh, and I believe that this is probably due to the fact that the rain actually stalled just to the south of here for quite a period of time during yesterday before moving NW over us later on in the day.


This meant that for for most of yesterday, it was probably likely to have already been raining at Comiston whilst the north of Edinburgh was relatively dry so from that context, I still have a valid claim that the weather in the north of Edinburgh isn't generally as interesting as it is in the south of Edinburgh (or elsewhere for that matter).


Meanwhile, Comiston has had a total of 575.8 mm of rain during this year so far according to SEPA, a total of 113.6 mm of rain during this month so far and a total of 113.6 mm during this autumn so far.


I don't know what the official 1991-2020 average September rainfall is for Comiston but since this is unlikely to all that much different from the averages for Edinburgh Gogarbank or the botanic gardens in Edinburgh, it would appear that Comiston has already had a lot more than that average during this month which means that regardless of what happens between now and the end of this month, this month will already be going down as being wetter than average there which is remarkable when you consider that we're only 9 days (which is slightly less than a third of the way) into this month.


In addition to that, I have also noticed that unlike my own local stations which I always report on here, Comiston also had a substantially wetter than average August with a total of 122.8 mm. According to SEPA, the monthly average during August is 92.1 mm at Comiston which is higher than what it is in the rest of Edinburgh, although there is no mention there of which period that average refers to (1981-2010 or 1991-2020).


I mentioned quite a lot of the time that there appeared to be a lot of rainfall around at times during August which just wasn't being picked up at either Edinburgh Gogarbank or the botanic gardens in Edinburgh, and that was one of my biggest points of frustration during that period rather than any claim that it wasn't actually raining, but it would appear from the data that this wasn't actually the case at Comiston which appeared to pick up the biggest brunt of that rainfall.

Wind off sea from NE and heavy showers are doing what they are supposed to rather than fizzling away to nothing by the time they get here from more westerly quarters.
About 3mm first thing and another 3mm or so the past hour.
Since ground was already nicely wetted it should really be soaking in now so drought can finally be considered practically over here.
Even farm spring supply has recovered enough to turn cattle troughs back on mind it had only started to struggle on Tuesday this week.
They had alternative water just a bit further to walk too.
Just gone over 25mm for the month.
I would not be surprised if September is wettest so far this year which would not be hard since it only has to beat February with 49mm

Already a ridiculous 84mm here so far this month. Good for the plants but otherwise just rather soggy. Having said that, given the high rainfall totals, the ground is nit that wet even still.
