MON: Getting Heavy the Further North...

ECML-Route-Weather Watch


Welcome to my Blog, bringing you my weather observations through North East Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, North Nottinghamshire, South Yorkshire, North Yorkshire and into the City of York during my daily commute from Melton Mowbray, by car and train.

Monday 21st January 2008:

Getting Heavy the Further North...

Very heavy rain fell across Melton Mowbray early on Sunday evening but by 20:00 it had cleared through. This morning in Melton it was damp with some drizzle with a light to moderate South Westerly wind blowing across the vale, it also felt quite mild. Similar conditions were apparent in Grantham when I boarded the train for York. En-route the rain became heavier with very heavy and persistent rain falling by the time the train reached Retford. On arrival into York this morning, the heavy rain is still falling although it felt much cooler.

The River Wharfe through Ryther is still high with it's flood plain underwater. The water has cleared on the flood plains associated with the Rivers Trent at Newark/Muskham and the Aire through Templehirst, although the land is very saturated.

Tomorrow; A cold and frosty start is apparently on the cards!
