/ How much has it rained in the Lakes?
I've been making the most of the dry summer visiting lots of remote mountain crags and was hoping to tick off another classic from my to do list on Sunday but I'm aware there has been some rain on Thursday and today, but how much?
Just a bit of drizzle which will run off the bone dry crags in minutes or has there been some proper rain which will actually wet things?
Thanks in advance.
Rained heavily today for an hour or so but drying out again nicely, still no water in becks and the ground has a lot of capacity so seeps may take a while to start running again, ground is still properly dry.
Was at Long Scar on Pike O'Blisco until about 1.30pm today. Could hardly see the crag whilst standing right by it. Intermittent rain and generally very damp air, streams coming off the crag. As soon as rain eased so did the little streams. Ground up there still very dry. There's been more heavy showers in Ambleside this eve, but looks dry again now.
Thanks for the replies, so some proper rain but everything so dry its not doing much to wet the crags yet.
Next to no rain in Borrowdale over the last two days. Was on Tophet Wall on Wed, everything is bone dry.
Rained in Keswick for a couple of hours yesterday afternoon. Bone dry again by later in the evening. Rained again less heavily around midday today in Keswick. Bone dry this evening. The rain made little difference. I'd say most crags would be climbable this weekend with no rain in the forecast.
No rain out west.
Thanks all, heading up tonight. Just got to decide now, Scrubby Crag or Gable Crag!
I wouldn't miss the opportunity to visit gable crag, it's magnificent.
Yes, that's my first choice but the met office is showing afternoon showers moving in from the west with very little if anything reaching the east.
