Already well over half the monthly average with a ludicrous 42.8mm following on from 96.8mm in October and 138.2mm in September 


So 277.8mm for the vile autumn thus far. Pretty much a certaintly that 300mm will be exceeded for the 2nd autumn in succession 


Hard to tell, given the considerable variuation there can be in rainfall over a short distance, but this could well be the first time since 1940/41 that successive autumns have breached 300mm 


1941 had one of the wettest days on record with 76mm falling on 10th October. Nothing like that this year or last. Just two hideously grim and unrelentingly poor mild soggy washout horror shows.


Tuesday was the wettest day so far with 33.0mm which is the highest daily total I've recorded in November over the past 18 years. Surprisingly low given that both September and October have recorded daily totals over 50mm.


 


Haven't had a dry spell of more than three consecutive days so far this autumn and last year was the same until 16th -19th November.


Utterly repulsive

A bit of light rain takes it to 58.8mm so far this month. That's more than the whole of October (49mm) already.

A note for Jiries about the continuing need for lots of rain, at least in the south

Ground water low and still descending; Worthing (scroll down) at drought level (yes, it will recover but winter rainfall is needed for that)

Why not move to Fort William? It's not that far away and then you could be really miserable


370.8 mm in October, 58.6 mm so far in November

I understand your pain, though, as the SEPA gauges on this website in the Aberdeen area have only recorded around 10mm for November so far. Obviously you have a domesticated raincloud tethered to your location

Been raining here (albeit mostly light rain and drizzle yesterday, today has had more heavier interludes) since early hours of yesterday and still going.


Yesterday had 10mm for the day, today is currently on 14.8mm.


Rainfall total wise I'm on 102.3mm - 50+mm of that was from the other day. Wasn't sure if my gauge was accurate as a bit out of step with one a few miles to my North for that event but having had a wander round that day water was forcing itself up through the ground and a lot of the paths had been stripped of leaves and topsoil so assume I'd got some convective enhancement within the rain and got 'lucky'. 


Means locally I've already had a wetter than average autumn.

Below is the last meeting and published 14th October 2022


National Drought Group forecasts drought may remain beyond spring 2023


"Projections suggest average rainfall over winter will not be enough to prevent drought conditions in some areas next year.


Average rainfall levels over winter will still not be sufficient to avoid impending drought or drought conditions next year, the National Drought Group has forecast." 


"Many water companies have suggested impending drought or drought conditions will remain beyond spring in some areas– notably in parts of the South West, South East, East and Yorkshire and East Midlands - if rainfall is below average."


I thinks it's above average now, the amount of rain we've had recently

Lol 6 days into November and approaching 100mm already.


Both September & October were wet months with around 100mm of rainfall each. -Te average yearly rainfall for here is around 680mm meaning the first 2 months & 6 days of autumn have dumped close to half the annual rainfall. 


August by the way was also quite wet.
