The next area of rain pushes into SW England and Wales this morning and it won’t be long before it reaches the West Midlands.
Today's rain pushes away. More tomorrow
2nd July is St. Mary's Day.
According to weather folklore... "if it rains on St. Mary's Day, it will rain for four weeks"
Thankfully this piece of weather folklore has a disastrous success rate... though it looks like staying wet for the foreseeable future.
Two bands of rain from this morning are now merging to give a thoroughly wet afternoon.
First thing, we had a line of rain from The Wash to the Isle of Wight, and one stretching from North Wales down to SW England which pushed eastwards.
They now combine, temperatures 16-17c, approx 4c below average
More general rain until Wednesday, then showers
Lots of bands of showers passed through yesterday so it's not surprising that so many of our viewers spotted double rainbows.
They form of course when sun shines on rain at a certain angle, and these places are exactly where we would have expected them to form.
Rain pushing in from the west overnight
