01:01 pm - Weather ...
Seems the Met Office has reworked their site (as I discovered when my handy links to Glasgow observations and forecast broke). Unfortunately, they've managed to provide even less information than before. You'd think a weather site would be able to tell you how much rain a place has had, but the old site would only provide that if you were one of the 10 wettest places in the UK for the past day. The new site only reports the wettest place - amazingly, Glasgow isn't always it !
The Australian BoM provides hourly rainfall data for every site - surely the Met Office can at least give daily rainfall figures ?
(I've left them feedback via their feedback form, but I wouldn't bet on them doing anything about it)

Yes, but in Australia, rain is something to look forward to, is interesting and exotic and desirable. In the UK, it's something to complain about.

Still remember having been in the UK less than a week and falling moff my chair laughing when someone told me in all seriousness that there was amajor drought on because it hadn't rained in Kent for three weeks.
