Frequent depressions are depressing!

Yet more rain during Tuesday and the early hours of Wednesday amounting to 7.6mm that brought the monthly to 67.4mm, which is 113% of the 37-year average.

The thermometer again did not rise above average with a maximum of only 15.5C (-1.8C).

Once again the cloud cover meant a relatively mild night with the thermometer not sinking below 8.0C, which was 1.1C above the average.

Wednesday dawned with thick cloud from the back edge of the weather front that had brought over two hours of rain, ceasing just before 06.00. By 08.00 the sun began to break through the cloud as the weather front drifted eastwards.
