Bad light might take us off for the rest of Day 2 so we'll use this one for Day 3 and 4.

Need to split these two.
For anyone there - any likelihood of that happening?

We're rattling through the overs - need some wickets for bowling points at least

WAs the run out good fielding or poor calling?

Both at one end. One very unamused departure.

Sadly it seems that we've failed to get this track dry enough for it to help the bowlers much. July was just too wet, I guess.

It's helped SD and TA show some form, which is a plus, but if the final two home tracks are slow and flat too then we will surely go down I'm afraid ESPECIALLY as we are reduced to only two front-line seamers. Let's face it our other seamers are either military medium (Pete, Jim) or unproven (Josh, PVM), so if the remaining tracks don't turn and/or are painfully slow then we have real problems.

IF the forecast is right then the only thing we might get today is maybe 15 overs or so starting about 5.30

So this is a draw but hopefully we can manage to winkle them out and get our bowling bonus points.

If anyone in Taunton is reading this, what is the weather like this morning, please? (The information on the Richard Huish site is 41 days out of date!)

I'm nowhere near Taunton, but the BBC Weather service looks like rain until about 2 or 3pm

Thanks, Rod. I had see that, but wondered whether the reality matched up to it. In any event, I will set off soon with my fingers crossed.

I am about 200 metres away from the ground and it's raining pretty heavily.

Lightish but very steady rain in Wellington, sky uniformly grey.

Yep, it's the usual depressing August weather. It is often one of the wettest months of the entire year and almost always the wettest of the three summer months.

I hope the ECB decides to play its new abomination in August...........

It's wet at the ground Wickham all covers on and puddles on pitches at the edges of the covers. They expect the climate to dry out about 2:00. Simon expects very little play as the outfield is sodden.

Can't vouch for the reliability of the data, but going on the assumption it's valid. You are wrong... [www.yr.no]

August is more 'rainy' than July, but no more than any other month in the year on average.

No play before an early lunch at Taunton. Inspection about 2 and it is doubtful of play today according to those who have had conversations this morning.

Barndoorio - I was talking about the country as a whole, rather than Taunton specifically.

When I said wettest I was also thinking about the total amount of rain that falls, rather than number of wet days per month.

[sdwebx.worldbank.org]

On that basis, as this confirms, August tends to be the wettest of the summer months.

It's also the fifth wettest month of the whole year on that basis, with only October, November, December and January being worse. There will, of course, be regional variations but, in general, I would say the further West a place is the more likely it to adhere to this pattern.
