Intense rain NE Scotland

Figure 1

An area of heavy rain has developed in the last hour over northeast Scotland (fig 1). It doesn’t get much more intense that 16-32 mm per hour, well actually it does, the pixels turn white with intensities of 32 mm per hour and higher. According to the UKMO analysis it looks like it’s a very active bent back occlusion that’s behind it (fig 2).

I did notice that the rain never even got a mention in the BBC weather at 12.58 pm, although we did get Sarah Keith-Lucas showing us a couple of  nice pictures, one by Geoff of Histon in Cambrideshire, and the other by Alan in Topsham in Devon!
