Looks a very wet windy spell followed by a possible storm this weekend.


Biggest test so far to Carlisle's new flood defences :?:

Then again you have to take these Weather Warnings with a 'pinch of salt'
it might not be as bad as they're making out.

I've been keeping an eye out on this storm Saturday, some models
GFS have it close by moving quickly up west Scotland other models
keep it further west. Still potential for gales - severe the further west
you are. Still early yet though.

An interesting day or so coming up.

My brother works in the flood defence dept at Copeland BC and is now on 24 hours call out, I'm planning on taking surface water samples from various locations inclusing the River Irt and Esk tomorrow. Shouldn't have to walk too far to get 6 litres of sample.

I'm not surprised.
Is there a photo of the rainfall site?

I have never seen one. But I feel a trip to Seathwaite is on the cards when there is a dry spell. In fact I have a friend that does alot of fell running, perhaps I may ask him to find it

I saw the rainfall station on Look North (I think it was LN) last evening
the gauge is a green tipping bucket Environment Agency type (same
as mine Paul) looked in very good condition installed in a small enclosure.
