After so many wet days it was a treat to have a dry day and enjoy 9.1 hours of sunshine on Tuesday as the high pressure exerted itself. The UV level, for just half an hour between 1230 and 1300, rose to Very High, the highest this month. Under lighter winds and the strong sunshine the thermometer rose to 23.9C being 2.8C above average and the highest since 26th July.
With much clearer skies overnight the thermometer dropped away to 9.6C, which was 2.1C below average.
Wednesday was initially overcast but just after 0730 the sun began to teak through intermittently.
The barometric pressure at 0800 read 1018.8mb, the highest in two weeks.
