27/28 Apr 2021 – Southeast living a charmed life

Estimates v Observed

The extreme southeast of England was living a charmed life yesterday as far as rainfall was concerned. The drought has now lasted a full 32 days in St James Park central London but I can’t see them escaping and making it a completely dry April. Other diverse parts of England are also now into an absolute drought territory, such as St Bee’s Head on the Cumbrian coast, Cranwell in Lincolnshire and Plymouth in the southwest, after escaping the showers of yesterday. My estimated rainfall accumulations from weather radar on the whole look pretty reasonable and I caught the heavy shower in the Bristol Channel, although I reckon that some of the rain wasn’t reaching the ground in many of the lighter more fleeting showers.
