Quiet before the next storm

Temperatures by day and night were down a little on Saturday’s figures, but still above average, with a maximum of 21.2C (+0.2C) and 12.8C (+1.2C).

The wind was still brisk, but having veered a few degrees came from the west with a maximum gust of 22mph, the lowest for six days.

Monday opened with a totally cloudy sky and drops of rain, not enough to call a shower, as a fragmented rain band began to cross the area. The temperature at 08.00 was 13.6C making it the coolest start to a day since 20th July.
