High pressure continues, but not much sun!

The thermometer continued to rise slowly and continuously all day and night from Wednesday into Thursday morning from a low of 6.2C to 12.1C at 08.00 Thursday. So the maximum from Wednesday occurred 08.00 Thursday and the low for Wednesday occurred at 08.00 Wednesday.

Light rain fell between 1230 and 1630 amounting to 3.0mm that took the monthly total to 38.8mm compared to my 40-year average of 57.1mm.

Thursday arrived dull but quiet as another weather front straddled our area. However, the ridge of high pressure, with a reading of 1028.5mb at 08.00, will produce a mainly dry day with minimal sunshine thanks to the slow moving weather front. The southwesterly air movement is likely to be light compared to recent days and continue to bring very mild air from well down in the Atlantic, that will see the thermometer probably rise another 3C as Thursday progresses.
