    Default Ribble rising fast

    Really heavy rain all night, ribble is coming up fast and looks like going a lot higher, this is mainly local rain so far, still a lot to come from the hills yet.

    Brockholes Nature Reserve will be shut then. Not that anyone in their right mind is going twitching or walking in this!

    The Tyne, Wear, Tees, Swale, Ure, Nidd, Wharfe, and Eden have all shot up in a similar manner. I don't think the rain was anything like as localised as you might think.

    Looks like it’s bad everywhere, just looked at ribble height again looks like we may get a new record height for ribble today.

    The top black line is the highest ever recorded.

    Not good at all. We have just had an absolute deluge of rain hail and sleet which is already forming puddles. I hate weather like this. The temp has fallen from 11c to 7c in 10 minutes.

    It’s amazing me looking out the window as the gale is bashing our garden and trees that there are birds flying around, a few show offs that enjoy extreme flying.

    Just about right for chuck off Ribchester Front and a big girl coming out to play.

    Looks like today’s height might be a new record, according to the EA river height site, looks to have beaten the record by about three inches.

    Tried to take our granddaughter home earlier and got turned back by the police, lots of floodwater on the road plus debris, try again tomorrow although there’s a snow and ice warning for tomorrow.
