Warmest day this month

On Tuesday the almost continuous sunshine totalling 12.4 hours, raised the temperature to a maximum of 18.6C, which was 1.5C above average and the warmest day this month.

As the barometric pressure falls, 12 mb over the past two days, the pressure gradient increases hence the increase in the strength of the breeze with a modest gust of 18mph yesterday.

Tuesday saw the UV level rise to 6.9, which was on the border of the ‘very high’ category.

Although the minimum overnight was still below the average (-2.8C) it was less cold than the three previous nights with a low of 4.3C.

Update on Wednesday at 21.50: thermometer rose to a maximum of 19.8C at 15.41, which was 2.7C above average.
