Half an inch of rain on the gauge since midnight and dawn is only just breaking in the East.
Walking the terriers this morning really will be a walk on the wild side in this wind, the clouds are many layered and absolutely ripping across the sky. It looks like more rain will be arriving later in the day.
What a contrast to yesterday morning when it was calm, misty and frosty with ice in the margins of the dykes.
As football managers say, a weekend of two halves.
