Northerly breeze brought cooler air

The northerly breeze on Tuesday, gusting to 18mph, meant a cooler day and night. With sunshine restricted to the morning and a cloudy afternoon the thermometer only reached 14.5C, but that was still 0.4C above the average for April.

There were a couple of very light showers in the mid and late afternoon that only amounted to 0.4mm. That means that so far in April we have only received 29% of the long-term average rainfall.

The temperature dipped to 6.0C at 05.17 on Wednesday that arrived with very misty conditions. The light brightened a little after 08.15 but no sunshine due to thick cloud that had drifted in from the North Sea on the breeze that had veered further into the northeast and later will come from the east.
