Slack low brings more showers

With the depression centred off the Bay of Biscay, and getting closer on Sunday, it was not surprising to see more cloud and more rain. The thermometer struggled to reach a peak of 17.6C exactly as on Saturday and 5C below the average.

Showers began again at 1615 on Sunday and occurred overnight amounting to 4.9mm during a mild night with a minimum of 13.1c (+1.2C).

There was a lull in the showers around dawn but another large area of rain arrived at 0730 on Monday, so no sunshine fo the early morning.

The slack low pressure of recent days has meant calm days with little wind as maximum gusts were often only in single figures. Sunday the anemometer rose to a peak gust of 12mph.
