Wet Wet Wet

Nothing directly to do with a song by Marti Pellow and the boys from the 80s pop band, just  general reflection in the fact that it’s currently a hypothermia inducing wet summer and has been for some time. It can be summed up as:

Some of this heavy rainmostly this Heavy Rain Showers and Drizzleand occasionally this Light Rain Showers

Met Office Forecast

Rather cool, largely cloudy with rain or showers.


A band of rain will slowly edge southeastwards across the region this morning, with perhaps some locally heavy bursts of rain. Brighter conditions will follow, along with scattered showers, some of which will turn heavy, especially across Cumbria and Lancashire. Maximum temperature 16 °C.


Staying largely cloudy, with scattered showers. Initially the showers will be heavy at times, but overnight the showers will gradually become lighter, and perhaps replaced by longer spells of rain. Minimum temperature 10 °C.


Sunny intervals and scattered showers, these mainly light. Through the afternoon the showers will become more isolated, allowing longer spells of sunshine to develop. Maximum temperature 16 °C.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Sunday isolated showers, sunny intervals. Monday starting dry but becoming cloudy, with outbreaks of rain arriving. This rain will fizzle away overnight, only to be replaced by further rain Tuesday.

Probably shouldn’t complain too much. It could probably be worse and it is a chance to test just how good certain waterproof items are in their ability to keep you dry and warm.
