Highest barometric pressure for a month

On Sunday we enjoyed 3 hours of sunshine and a dry day with the exception of a brief shower just before noon, amounting to 0.3mm.

Temperatures by day and night were again above average with a maximum of 10.3C (+2.5C) and a minimum of 4.9C (+3C).

Monday arrived with the cloud bank easing away to the east and a predominantly clear sky with the promise of sunshine when it rises above the horizon.

The barometric pressure at 8.00 was 1026.9mb giving a temporary ridge of high pressure thus a drier and brighter day.

Incidentally, on this day last year we had snow and ice!

Update on Monday at 15.15: westerly breeze limits warmth to a maximum of 8.4C, (0.6C above average) at 14.29 despite 5 hours of welcome sunshine.
