80mm of rain yesterday recorded at the Airport! The Met Office said the area was being swamped by the remnants of Tropical Storm Danny, which caused dangerous conditions in America last week.
Aberdeen saw 0.75in (17mm) of rainfall overnight Wednesday to Thursday morning. The average rainfall for Aberdeen in September is 2.7in (68.3mm) – that’s 25% of the month’s rain in one night.
Hopefully this means the rest of September will be fantastic!

In lower lying ground around Aberdeen, flooding has closed roads and seen cars abandoned.
