After a dull, damp morning on Friday the sun did eventually break through in the late afternoon that lifted the thermometer to 14.7C. This was still below average (-2.6C). We have yet to enjoy a day in May that saw the thermometer rise above the maximum average.
The wind for the morning came from the north east and was light but in the afternoon it began to veer into the east and then southeast by 16.00 and then south-southeast.
At least the nights are above average with 8.4C minimum last night.
Saturday dawned dark and damp with light rain from thick, low cloud. Another 1.3mm of rainfall was logged that brought the monthly total to 45.1mm when the average was 59.6mm.
