Another day and another missed yellow warning for heavy rain for the southeast of England. Is that fair? Well you could argue that there is evidence of 15 to 25 mm over Lincolnshire from the weather radar estimates, but what about the rest of the southeast apart from there? There may have been potential for up to 40 to 60 mm across the area from embedded thunderstorms but that’s all it was potential. The 06-06 rainfall totals marry up well with the radar estimates.
