Little change except less windy after another chilly night

The breezy wind from the north east on Sunday combined with limited sunshine meant another cool day with the thermometer not rising above 11.3C being 2.8C below the average. In fact it was the coldest day this month also since 28th March.

However, it was a dry day with the UV level peaking in the ‘High’ category again. Initially overnight the temperature dropped well below average with a minimum of 1.6. at 01.26 early Monday but recovered as cloud spread across again, to 5.5C at 08.00.

The wind on Monday will be much lighter so it won’t feel quite so cold as Sunday even though it is going to be a cloudy day with precipitation imminent. The wind will back into the north-northwest before veering this afternoon back to northeast, but still light. The barometric pressure is still high with a reading of 1030.5mb at 08.00. A weather front will slowly cross the area during daylight hours producing variable amounts of rain.

With six successive dry days the evaporation rate has risen to a daily rate of between 2mm and 3mm.
