Sunshine down, UV down, temperature down by day but very warm night

Monday was a disappointing day after the strong sunshine on Sunday. The morning and much of the afternoon were hazy after the fog lifted but late afternoon the cloud cleared intermittently to produce 2.1 hours of sunshine.

The wind, continuing from the northeast and gaining in strength meant a cooler day with a maximum of 21.9C, being 5C above average but down 3C on Sunday’s maximum.

Tuesday has arrived with hazy conditions but no fog or sunshine because the cloud is thick and the northeasterly stronger again. The minimum overnight was 13.8C making it the warmest night this month.

Although we had the wettest day for almost four years on Thursday last week the rainfall for May is now 44mm but the evaporation from ground sources and plant life is 93.2mm.
