A little sunshine and a little rain on Saturday

Under the influence of a wind mainly from the west and minimal sunshine of 5 hours the thermometer did not get above the July average ((-0.9C) with a peak of 20.7C. The wind had abated from the effect of Storm Evert with a maximum gust of 15mph.

There were a couple of minimal showers in the morning amounting to 0.4mm that took the monthly total to 52.8mm being 6.8mm below the 37-year average.

Once again the persistent cloud cover meant a mild night, if dry night, with a minimum of 13.2C, which was 1.4C above the average.

Sunday dawned cloudy and dull with calm conditions but sadly no hint of brightness or even sunshine.
