The heaviest of the orographic rain that fell yesterday was concentrated over the Cumbian fells once again. Despite this the Met Office had no warning in place for heavy rain either here or for Snowdonia. I’m sure they’ll argue that the impacts of flooding from the event weren’t severe enough to warrant one. A total 88.4 mm of rain was reported from Shap, and 69.6 mm from Capel Curig, in the 24 hours ending at 06 UTC this morning. Western Scotland, which is covered by a yellow warning, did get a drenching with over a 125 mm on the highest hills, but it was even wetter across the Lake District with extremes close to 200 mm in a little over 24 hours if my estimates are anything to go by. Here’s the pseudo hyetograph for the highest mountain in England as an example, and don’t forget it had been raining here since 18 UTC on Saturday evening.
