Storm Forecast Issued: 2010-09-05 21:02:00
Valid: 2010-09-06 00:00:00 - 2010-09-06 23:59:00

Regions Affected
S Wales, SW England, SW Northern Ireland and Ireland ( England, Wales, Northern Ireland and W Scotland are included in the WATCH )

Synopsis

A large area of Low pressure to the south of Iceland dominates the weather across the United Kingdom on Monday.

Behind a cold front moving erratically northeastwards across the country, an rPm airmass is in place. Steep lapse rates are expected to enable widespread showers and thunderstorms to develop over a good portion of the north Atlantic, and also parts of central and southern Ireland, given enough insolation and cloud clearance from the straddling front.

In any of the showers, given the airmass, hail seems very likely, perhaps up to 3cm in diameter.

Showers should become to confined to coastal parts, and over the north Atlantic, during the evening and night hours, though brisk winds may enable them to travel further inland. The risk of thunderstorms continues into the night.

Thanks very much for posting this up Paul - rainfall is really bad isn't it, the radar says it all and looks like to continue into Tues afternoon,which may kill our thunderstorm potential  Sad, heard about boat damage at Newcastle on BBC Newline at lunch time. Must keep an eye on the rivers for flooding.

My thoughts exactly Martin-if this keeps up should be some potential flood images this evening and tomorrow.

Very heavy rain here this past hour.

Just back from a drive and river levels are getting high and i drove through a flood on a minor road where a small stream had overflowed its banks and was flowing across the road. 

Managed to grab a few shots out of the window of another stream which has also overflowed and is running around the back of this house





And the rain is still coming down.

Here's a few snaps taken this evening near dusk in heavy rain and low light showing major flooding at Moyola River, I could walk across this river a few days ago, now it's close to bursting it's bank in places, with more rain tonight and tommorow this could be worth keeping an eye on - the rest of the country is the same.

Nice one Martin, good to know you got out for a look and got some images.   Certainly a high level there, the Strule and Mourne rivers are close to bursting their banks and will likely peak overnight/early morning as the rain has eased off for now. Will be interesting to see in the morning.
