Anyone in the Dales had any rain yet?
« on: September 09, 2021, 03:03:14 pm »
Despite the dire forecast, it's still bone dry in the Clapham / Ingleton area (as at mid afternoon Thursday 9th Sept.). Rivers are just dribbling along their beds.

Anyone elsewhere in the Dales had any amount of rain yet?

We had 0.5 mm last night and we had a few drops around 3pm.
Looks like it could rain any minute

Yeah - saw that on the rain radar. Looks like Castleton got clobbered too.

On the radar image it seems to keep drifting north towards us then keeps splitting to avoid sunny Clapham. (Normally it's t'other way round!)

Still dry here - and almost tea time.

There was quite heavy rain in Malhamdale from about 7pm (plus quite a bit of lightning).

Only 7.5 mm in the gauge near Clapham, Saturday morning (11th).

Quite a lot more rain fell slightly further east (Ribblesdale). Brants Gill is up noticeably but the Ribble itself doesn't seem to be too affected.

Anyone know what effect the rain's had on the two rivers in Ingleton?

Nearest river gauge is on the wenning at bentham bridge, which comes down from Clapham - it rose 10cm, but slowly dropping off now:

All looks a bit overcast around the area, but not raining:

New to me too, was linked on the dalesbus website, but most of the other ones don't work. Personal weather stations tend to be somewhat ephemeral on the internet - I did try to find a direct link to it, but haven't yet.

Seems to be different from the one at Low Row (opposite crackpot, which recorded 3mm to muker's 10mm on Thursday), but it has data for each day since 2001:

On Friday pm / Saturday am, Brants Gill was rather discoloured whereas the Ribble was clear.
