Soggy Sunday!

Sunday was a day to forget, weatherise. After a cloudy start the rain began to fall at 09.55 and continued almost unabated until just before midnight with a minor break around 20.00. The daily total was 12.6mmm making it the wettest twenty-four hours since 20th October (12.7mm). That brought the monthly total to 35.9mm when the 38-year average is 66.9mm.

The southerly breeze was strong all day with a maximum gust of 32mph. No sunshine or UV level was possible due to the continuous thick, low cloud.

The thermometer rose to a maximum of 9.3C and fell to a minimum of 4.3C overnight, both being above average with +1.8C and +2.8C respectively.

Monday, thankfully, started dry with variable cloud and brief spells of sunshine.

The barometric pressure has fallen significantly over the past 36 hours with a low of 997.7mb at 08.00 on Monday and a minimum of 991.0mb due the depression passing to the north of the UK.
