Another day another tweak
The yellow warning for heavy rain across western parts of England and Wales first issued on Tuesday, and which was subsequently tweaked on Wednesday and Thursday, has been tweaked again on the day of the warning. This time two areas, Wales and northwest England, has been merged into one much larger area, and an extra amber warning has been added for the Wales for rainfall totals of 100 to 120mm over the upper valleys. Today’s latest update has made my Trigger’s broom analogy even more appropriate. Yellow warnings for heavy rain are really a bit of a nonsense in this country, and I don’t see any sense in issuing one four days early and then continually updating it, but I suppose if it keeps them busy where’s the harm?
