Cooler day followed by very cool night

The north westerly breeze, a cool direction, that meant temperatures by day and night were down on Monday with a daytime peak pf 20.4C (-0.6C). However, the air from that direction is much clear than from a southerly air mass so we enjoyed the highest solar activity since mid-July during the 10.4 hours of sunshine.

Much clearer airtight meant a very cool night with a minimum of 6.0C, the coolest in three weeks being 5.6C below average.

Tuesday started with much sunshine but by the time readings were taken at 08.00 cloud had begin to build limiting sunshine although the temperature at that time had risen to 14.9C.
