Cooler again on Sunday

The thermometer rose to just 11.6C on Sunday, which was 4C down on the peak of Saturday but still 1.1C above the 38-year average.

The cool air stream from the east continued but less strong with a maximum gust of 18mph, down on the 31mph on Saturday.

Clear skies initially overnight meant the thermometer dropped below freezing at 22.35 Sunday evening to reach a minimum of -2,2C at 01.58 early Monday. However, cloud then drifted in so the temperature began to rise again, above freezing just before 06.30 Monday and 2.0C at 08.00.

Monday saw much cloud at the start of the day with occasional very brief glimpses of sunshine. The barometric pressure remains high 1028.4mb at 08.00, so the fine dry weather will continue today, if cloudier.
