A little rain and a little sunshine on Tuesday

Tuesday brought sunshine and showers but less sunshine than on Monday, just 2.6 hours, and very brief showers in the early evening amounting 0.7mm.

The sunshine recorder that I reported on Monday had gone berserk during the continuous rain over the weekend has, fortunately, reset itself after switching off overnight. Cross referencing its accuracy with other instruments it appears to working as normal. Even in bursts of sunshine the UV levels are now in the ‘Low’ category as expected for this time of year.

Temperatures by day and night were almost exactly average with a maximum of 14.4C (-0.2C) an a minimum of 7.1C (-0.1C).

Wednesday saw thin cloud blocking out any shine after dawn with very light winds from the west.
