Cooler yet cooler

The northwesterly wind increased in strength on Monday, gusting to 25mph, which was the strongest this month. As a result of the much cooler air stream the thermometer only reached 14.6C being 4.3C below the average, even though we had intermittent sunshine. Likewise overnight, the air originating near Iceland was cool as the thermometer dropped to 6.9C being 2.4C below the average.

Tuesday began with intermittent sunshine with the breeze continuing from the northwest or west-northwest, but lighter. A few spots off rain were observed just before 08.00 but did not completely wet the ground. The barometric pressure has been much lower for the past twenty-four hours due to an intense depression to the Northwest, thus the windier and cloudier conditions. The pressure at 08.00 read 1004.1mb.
