Once again the news media reports very bad weather in the South of England as though all of Britain was deluged and blasted by stormy winds. Then, when did any media let the whole truth get in the way of attracting readers.
Although my part of the country was forecast to have gale force gusts this morning along with heavy rain the highest gust recorded here was around 15mph. Yesterday was worse before the storm reached us. Up to 36mph gusts were recorded. They did get the timing of the rain, if not the quantity, correct. Started about 4 a.m. and cleared soon after 11 a.m. and dumped all of 0.75 inches (19mm) in that time.
