More sun!

The sun recorder logged 10.34 hours of sunshine on Saturday, the second highest this month. As a result of the sunshine and very light breeze, maximum gust of just 10mph, the thermometer eased upwards a little to reach a maximum of 24.4C, which was 10.3C above the average and up 0.1C on the Friday peak.

The wind fell out completely for several hours overnight allowing the thermometer to slip to a minimum of 5.2C, down 1C on the Saturday minimum but still 1.2C above the average. This minimum was a degree below the Saturday low.

Sunday brought more sunshine after dawn, if hazy, as on previous mornings. The temperature recovered to reach 9.2C at 08.00. The barometric pressure dropped 8mb over the past twenty-four hours, current reading of 1014.6mb, as a small depression slipped down the west of the country. There is a divergence amongst two main forecasters, Meteorological Office and MeteoGroup (used by BBC), that the depression might produce a blip in the sunny weather during Sunday afternoon.
