Is there anywhere in the UK where it's NOT raining?

Really, has anyone got a glimpse of the sun? We'll all be round to yours sharpish. image

West Norfolk is a bit damp right now (think stair rods)



  • Folkestone, on the Kent coast...  rarely rains, even when the forecast says it is supposed to..  it might rain 5 miles away, but by the seaside it is either overcast or just sunny almost always  image

    It DOES rain sometimes...   but not often....


  • I can confirm that in the North East I have just witnessed a 7 minute spell with no rain. That'll be the summer done then...
  • It is raining here in Germany today too.

  • Suffolk, I was out running at 5.30am this morning, it was raining then, still is now.  Forecast for today is apparently rain.

    It's overcast and dull here in Reading. Forecast not to rain today but we've have plenty in recent days and the Thames is waaaaay higher than usual for the time of year.

    As I recall from my childhood down there, in Cornwall it rains all night but the skies are blue all day.

  • as I recall from childhood holidays down in cornwall it rains all night and all day... image

    Not really raining here (West Sussex/Hampshire border) I'm sure it will in time for lunchtime run...

  • Derbyshire - torrential for the past hour and a half with more to come image. Apparently we have a thunder storm to look forward to soon image

    Might shift the 30 miles round to Folkestone then DV as it's chucking it down here in Margate image

  • It's a lovely sunny day in NE Scotland image

    The forecast here is still for sunshine today. it's a very strange grey type of sun. No rain, micro climate here, it can be peeing down a mile in any direction but just here it's dry.

    London is just a damp squid. And it's raining.

    Correction. It is now raining in Reading, since an hour ago. Light and steady rain but rain nonetheless.

    And really quite pleasant for running in.

    I'll agree, it is quite pleasant, just taken the small one out for a walk image

  • Last night and this morning the weather forecast says it's not going to rain in the South. Then at 10am it starts to piss it down. Now the weather forecast is telling me it's raining. I think they should take out the word forecast.
  • Not raining in Devon at the moment. It did rain briefly this morning.

    Yesterday the sun was out, all day! image

  • Are none of the pedants going to pick up on the damp "squid" ?????
  • oiyouoiyou ✭✭✭

    Most, if not all, squid are damp for most of the time.

  • It was raining earlier here in Edinburgh, but now it is just grey image
  • Hasn't rained here in Cardiff so far today - although I don't think that's going to last long. Sunny all day yesterday.

  • Liquid sunshine in London...was dry at home this morning with no rain forecast (Hampshire), but the other half informs me that the washing is most probably getting an extra rinse (he works just down the road).

  • Over any reservoir in the South of England, so still have hosepipe bans image

    Really Brooks?  We finally had ours lifted a couple of weeks ago in the SE.

    Warm and sunny now in Margate.  I was in the pool so didn't really benefit image

  • Heathrow - p***ing down! Going away tomorrow to an event where we should get a solo Spitfire acrobatic display - but I don't think they'll want to take it out in this weather. Bugger.

    Still raining in Reading ... FFS ...

  • It stopped for long enough to let me get an hour's run in here. Though I went along about 50m of (what's usually!) dirt track and came out with my legs looking like I'djust done X/C...

  • It started raining here 7 minutes ago.

    Now its stopped.

    Maybe it will start again maybe the sun will come out.

    Lets wait and see.

    If you cant appriciate that as a metaphor for all mans hopes, dreams, desires and failures, you have no soul.
