If they had only fitted a rainfall gauge to the AWS at Broadness on the Thames at Gravesend, they probably would have measured over 50 mm of rainfall in the 24 hours ending 06 UTC this morning (fig 2). I still can’t understand why this heavy rainfall event didn’t cause any pluvial or fluvial flooding issues yesterday in this part of the world.
