Getting warmer by day but not night – yet!

Friday saw the thermometer edge a little higher with a maximum of 24.2C being 1.5C above the 38-year average.

It was the thirteenth consecutive dry day with the UV level at Very High. The breeze was light and predominantly from the north with a peak gust of 11mph but calm overnight.

It was another very cool night with a minimum of 7.4C, which was 4.5C below the average.

Saturday began with strong sunshine that lifted the temperature to 16.7C at 08.00. At that time the barometric pressure read 1025.8mb, almost exactly the same as Friday due to the anticyclone centred over the UK and only slowly edging eastward.
