As the dry spell and sunshine continues the land is drying so the humidity each morning at 08.00 is reducing with 88%, 84% and 75% respectively on the last three mornings. Another 4mm of equivalent rainfall was lost on Saturday as we enjoyed another 11 hours of strong sunshine and light winds mainly from the east, maximum gust being 15mph.

The thermometer by day rose to 23.2C, fractionally below the Friday peak but still 6.1C above average. The clearer skies overnight allowed the temperature to drop to 6.1C at 05.27, which was 0.9C below average.

Sunday arrived with high cloud moderating the sunshine however the temperature recovered quickly to read 15.1C at 08.00.
