So, right now it is raining. hard. But the weather forecast says sunny intervals. Mmmm.
If I fire up google earth and hone in onto Cranleigh then select radar and cloud I am greeted with the image above. The HIRAD radar data gets refreshed every twenty minutes or so.
Now the wind is coming at 22mph from the SSW according to metcheck and the bbc weather sites. So that band of rain from east anglia to hayling island is moving fast to the northeast.
From that, my dear Watson I can conclude that we have one more heavy shower to endure and then we should have a rain free afternoon.
LETS SEE IF I'M RIGHT SHALL WE?
edit: Wrong, Wrong, Wrong. The radar is only over land masses. Once the first lot of heavy cloud cover had passed another one appeared and then another. Kind of makes the radar useless if you are near the coast.
