Sunshine and showers on Wednesday

Wednesday gave us a wet morning but the sun eventually broke through in the afternoon to give us 5.23 hours of strong sunshine. However, the temperature was moderated by the broken cloud that produced several showers with that occurring at 14.26 producing small hail. The total precipitation was 7.3mm.

Clearing skies meant another chilly night, but not as low as a frost with the thermometer only falling to 3.4C.

Thursday broke with hazy sunshine thanks to much higher barometric pressure, that continues to rise.

Thursday update at 17.00: warmth returns with the warmest day since 22nd April producing a maximum of 16.8C at 15.48, average for early May.
