Windy, cool day followed by much more rain

Tuesday, sadly, was a sunless day with gusting northeasterly winds and heavy cloud.

The thermometer slowly reached a maximum of 17.3C, which was 0.5C above average as was the minimum overnight, of 12.9C (+6C), due to thick cloud from another weather front arriving from the east.

The rain in the early hours amounted to 9.2mm, which brings the total for May to 53.2mm, still 8mm below the 34-year average.

Wednesday started with the hang back of heavy cloud from the latest weather front and rain that stopped just after 7.30am.
