We all know the UK sees a good deal of rainfall, but it’s not often you cannot see the country at all on a rainfall radar image like the one below.
As you can see from the picture, taken from 6.50 am this morning, rain is falling widely across a large part of the UK.
Some places have seen persistent rain since the early hours of yesterday (Wednesday) morning, with some fairly high rainfall totals.
Rainfall totals in the table below are from 00:00 am on 19 December to 10:00 am on 20 December
|Tredegar, Bryn Bach Park||Gwent||44.8|
|Thorney Island||West Sussex||43.6|
|Cardiff, Bute Park||South Glamorgan||42|
|Shoreham Airport||West Sussex||41|
More rain is expected to fall over the next few days, which is likely to cause localised flooding and disruption to travel in the run up to the festive period.
If heading out on a journey, check local traffic updates and allow additional time for potential for delays.
