Cool northwesterly wind set in on Monday

With the wind coming from the northwest on Monday it was not surprising to find a below average maximum (-1.2C) with a peak of 19.9C. In addition, the long run of wind from the Atlantic brought more cloud although it did brighten up mid-morning and eventually we received 8.9 hours of sunshine with the UV level very briefly nudging into the Very High category. It was a dry day, the seventh this month.

The overnight low was also below average, but only just (-0.2C), with a minimum of 11.5C.

Tuesday brought an overcast start to the day with the wind backing a few degrees into the west.
