17-18 April 2020 – Rainfall accumulations

Estimated 06-06 Rainfall 17-18 April 2020

I am quite impressed with these estimates of the last 24 hours rainfall accumulations across the south from weather radar images. The rain was generally confined to the west and southwset of London with East Anglia escaping most of it. Thunderstorms that developed over the north of France just couldn’t penetrate the cold waters of the English Channel by the looks of things.

Actual 06-06 Rainfall 17-18 April 2020

The ground must have been so dry in the Winchester area that it just absorbed the 30 to 45 mm of rain that fell locally yesterday judging by this monitoring gauge on the River Itchen.
