The daily loss of equivalent rainfall through evaporation from ground sources and plant life continues high, over 5mm on Wednesday, with the monthly total now 74mm when the actual rainfall totals 22.7mm
The past night has been very mild with a minimum of 14.0C being 3.9C above the average.
Friday arrived dull and grey with total cloud cover thus no sunshine. A depression close by, just to the west of Scotland, has brought about the change in our weather with the current barometric pressure reading of 1004.9mb at 0800, the lowest pressure since the 8th.
