Much cooler after cold front goes through

The maximum of 17.2C on Monday was 1.5C below average and the coolest day since 31st August as a result of the cold front bringing a much cooler air stream. The warm air from the Azores is just a memory from last week.

We enjoyed the sunshine between the showers, which at times were heavy with a daily total of 4.3mm.

The past night was also cool with a minimum of 8.2C being 0.9C below average.

Tuesday dawned with rain from a totally cloudy sky, not from showers as on Monday.
