Thanks to the wind from the west nor west on Monday, a cool direction, the past day and night were distinctly cool. The thermometer rose to a peak of 19.6C being 3.2C below the average whereas the minimum that occurred at 03.20 on Tuesday morning was 8.8C, which was 3.1C below the 36-year average.
However, we did enjoy the 7 hours of sunshine during which the UV level again peaked into the ‘Very High’ category.
Tuesday saw variable sunshine from dawn that had lifted the thermometer to 16.2C at 08.00, the warmest start to the day at this time since 26th June. The current barometric pressure at this time was 1021.0mb, the highest for two weeks BUT it is beginning to fall as ex Storm Edouard approaches from the Atlantic.
