NW England is a great place to live in weather situations like this.. I went to my allotment plot today and it was not that wet!

The general outlook looks rather sobering for coastal areas in Southwestern UK exposed to the Southwest though !
Heswall, Wirral, UK
USDA equivalent average temperature zone: 9a/RHS zone 3

Its been pretty wet in my corner of the NW. I think it has rained at some point everyday of 2014 so far apart from 2nd feb. Total rainfall for january was just over 200mm which I thought was quite a lot but when ive looked back there have been 3 years with more and another 2 with 140mm in the last 9 years.

Winds of 60/80 mph forecast tonight and tomorrow, same as last Wednesday and possibly again next Tuesday.
The river Frome here flows under the main (only) road to Swanage, by tomorrow it may flow across it.
Wareham sits between two rivers but about 30ft higher, if it wasn't half the town would be submerged. It's looking pretty grim here and in Somerset. I'm glad I don't live on Portland anymore!

Have to travel south tomorrow and 60MPH winds forecast. Part of the A22 to Godstone was closed for flooding today and with heavy rain overnight and very heavy squally showers tomorrow I imagine the lake that diverted today's traffic will be a lot bigger when I try to swim past :roll:

Thank God it was a pussy cat here,

There was one massive blast about 11pm then I was thinking here we go no sleep but that was it...one blast.

Even the temp planted rose tree did'nt fall over.

Its calm between small gusts this morning and dry.
