That's what happens when you outsource your weather service provider to a company based in Spain. Whilst the pandemic (lack of aircraft flights) had a negative effect on all forecasting, I've found the Met Office to be generally more reliable than the BBC since 2018 when the Beeb switched to MeteoGroup.
I wonder if the council’s have been out clearing all the road gullies of leaves and all the debris that’s accumulated over the year before the storms have hit.
Main reason the roads get flooded.
Mansfield area. We got heavy showers this afternoon between 3 and 5. And the last half an hour or so has been heavy rain with it forecast to rain all night and tomorrow morning. Some roads were flooding a bit on the drive home from work.
Ground seems to be too dry and compact for it to absorb much and it’s all running off into the roads.
Rained here yesterday in the NW for several hours, kind'a steady on and off type rain.
I had a couple of hours running the float down the river late afternoon today, just as I got back to the car the wind got up and there was a huge bank of black clouds rolled in. I expected it to hammer down but it didn't while I was there. Been back home several hours now and clouds have moved in here also, but no rain as of yet.
