No sun on Tuesday! only second day in April

The rain on Tuesday continued for most of the day adding another 7.8mm to the monthly rainfall total that currently stands at 59.5mm, which is 1.6mm above the 36-year average.

There was no sunshine as the depression very slowly edged northwards slowly circling anticlockwise bringing thick, low cloud. As a result the UV level of 1.5 was the lowest this month and in the ‘Low’ category.

The rain and cloud meant the thermometer stubbornly remained at 7.7C or 7.8C all day, which made it the coldest day since 5th March.

Overnight the thermometer edged a little lower producing a minimum of 5.9C.

There was broken sunshine after dawn on Wednesday that lifted the temperature back to 7.8C at 08.00.

Yesterday’s depression is easing away as another approaches from the west with rain later this morning. The barometric pressure edges even lower with a current reading of 1002.2mb making it the lowest pressure since 5th March.
