Yesterday – 18 May 2017

Apart from the area of rain that affected the east of the country,  the other interesting thing in this estimated accumulations chart as far I’m concerned here in the southwest, were a band of showers that started life around Falmouth, and ran ENE across south Devon and into Dorset during the day. The trajectory of those showers was diametrically opposed to that of the rainband in the east which was moving due north, later in the evening the remnants of the showers curved to the right and took a course that was more SE’ly. I notice that already today, there’s a large CB and associated heavy shower coming onto the north coast of Cornwall in the NW’ly flow.
