No sun no UV but more rain on Wednesday!

Wednesday brought another 5.0mm of rainfall that raised the monthly total to 51.3mm being 56% of the 36-year average. So far this month of changeable weather we have endured eight days without a flicker of sunshine.

The thermometer climbed slowly to 9.4C during daylight hours, which was again above average (+1.4C), likewise the overnight minimum of 4.3C (+2.0C). The southerly breeze brought the mild air from the Continent and the Atlantic around the Bay of Biscay.

Thursday saw a much clear sky after dawn with the promise of sunshine thanks to a modest if transient ridge of high pressure, the highest reading since 2nd December at 1013.4mb.
