Brief sunny intervals late on Saturday

Saturday morning was predominantly cloudy but very brief sunny intervals occurred in the afternoon. The maximum was again above average (+2.7C), the eight consecutive this month. It was dry day.

A mild night followed with a minimum of 9.1C, the coolest since Wednesday but still 5.1C above the 37-year average.

Sunday arrived with the cloud base again higher than last week and with minor breaks after dawn allowing brief glimpses of brightness that filled in after 08.20.

The barometric pressure has been rising again so today is likely to be calm and dry.
