Sunday 01 November 2015, Gaucin, cloudy, rain, E-SE wind gusting to gale force, 15C

Just a weather report today as Gaucin experienced some serious rain mid-afternoon on Sunday that resulted in some flooding of houses. Despite a 'yellow' weather warning it had all been quite subdued, if a little windy, until the skies turned a darker shade of black just before 17:00hrs and the rain began to fall heavily; over the following 45min a total of 45mm of rain fell, overwhelming some of the drains and forcing its way into several houses.
