25th August - Today's News: Hurricane Approaches Haiti; Typhoon Approaches Japan



Apparently a 'month's rain due on Saturday' - though I'm not quite sure where?   Haiti?   There could be some heavy slow moving showers about though which may give 10-15mm in places.   August is normally one of the wettest months of the year in England, simply because heavy, slow moving, thundery showers often occur at this time of year.   I note that someone from the MetO is quoted as suggesting up 50mm (sitill less than a month's rain) but I don't know where he gets that from.  Latest NAE suggests the highest totals today will be around 20mm over the Lake District whilst GFS has lower totals there but around 18mm for parts of East Anglia (to be fair, the story is from yesterday, but nonetheless such high totals have never been indicted by any models that I'm aware of).
