“It's snowing still," said Eeyore gloomily.
"So it is."
"And freezing."
"Is it?"
"Yes," said Eeyore. "However," he said, brightening up a little, "we haven't had an earthquake lately.”

Mike,

I'm surprised that's your highest rainfall rate in 3 years. Consider yourself very lucky! ;)

That's only 2.64"/hr. You must be in the rain shadow of the Welsh hills! For comparison my highest for July is 9.76"/hr in July 2009 and 10.29"/hr in August last year.

What was interesting was the temperature drop during the heavy shower. It dropped 5.5°C in 15 minutes here. 21.4 to 15.9. :o
Cheers,
Ray, Cheshire.

Here in the states (Oklahoma to be a little more precise) my rain rate record got set last week at 11.08"/hr. That's about 281mm/hr, if my metric conversions are correct. Had a frog-choker (US term) in which I got, in a little more than 40 minutes, just over 3" of rain (about 78mm).

BigOkie,

Everything in the US is always bigger! :D

3" in 40 mins is nothing short of a cloudburst! The wettest day I've recorded was just over 2" of which 1.1" fell in an hour and I thought that was bad. Three times that is difficult to imagine.

Incidentally, it's got to 89.8F here last Wednesday - highest in years. One day of that was enough! Never dropped below 68F overnight but remember we have no air-cond. Not comfortable. :(
Cheers,
Ray, Cheshire.
