With 12.6 hours of sunshine the thermometer steadily rose to its highest this month with a maximum of 17.8C, which was the warmest day this month. However, the light air movement from the north east, meant that this was only 0.7C above the May average.
The UV level was at the top end of the ‘high’ category with evaporation losing the equivalent rainfall of 4.3mm into the atmosphere.
The clear skies overnight meant another cool night with the minimum of 3.1C recorded at 05.46 Monday morning, which was 4C below average.
The sun was shining through the misty conditions at dawn with the barometric pressure even higher at 08.00, with a reading of 1039.3mb, the highest since 2nd January, hence the dry, sunny and calm conditions.
