Temperatures still above average by day and night

The bright sunshine on Sunday saw the thermometer rise to 12.6C (+2.4C) with an overnight low of 5.9C (+2.0C). Only one day and not were below average this month so far.

We were greeted by continuous sunshine on Monday after sunrise due to a rise in the barometric pressure that will continue into Tuesday as a short-lived ridge of high pressure edges in. The pressure reading at 08.00 was 997.4mb, a rise of 17mb that should suppress most of the shower activity but provide more welcome sunshine.
