First sunless day in April on Saturday

The rain band on Saturday took until noon to slowly leave the area adding another 2.9mm of rainfall that brought the monthly total to 38.4mm being 66% of the monthly average. It was the first day in April when no sunshine was logged. We have to go back in the records to 19th March when this last occurred.

Due to the persistent cloud and cool north easterly breeze the temperature was depressed with a maximum of only 10.3C, which was 3.8C below the average.

Overnight, due to cloud cover, the thermometer did not drop below 7.4C.

Sunday saw the sun make occasional appearances after 08.00. By 08.300 the cloud was breaking with more continuous sunshine. With the high pressure over Scandinavia intensifying the north easterly is much brisker.
