A little sun to give us a treat after many dismal days

Most of Tuesday was dull and overcast but late afternoon the sun did put in an appearance for 1.4 hours. This lifted the temperature a little higher to 17.6C, but still 2.6C below average. However, it was a dry day but the UV level was only moderate in the late sunshine.

It was a cool night with a minimum of 8.3C at 05.30 on Wednesday. However, early morning weak sunshine, through the misty conditions, lifted the temperature to 13.3C at 08.00. Sadly the sun disappeared just before 07.30 as cloud once again drifted across on a northeasterly light breeze.

The depression is very slowly easing eastward today with the barometric pressure beginning to rise as an anticyclone edges in from the northwest.
