Warm, moist air brings rain overnight

Both the maximum of 20.1C (+1.5) and minimum 14.3C (+5.1C) were above average on Tuesday, and overnight, due to the moist, mild Atlantic air brought on the south westerly air flow.

It was a dry day with rain beginning to fall after midnight for a couple of hours amounting to 2.6mm, which made it the wettest day since 16th August.

Cloud from the overnight weather front meant no sunshine at dawn but as the cloud, associated with the overnight weather front, eased away to the east the sun began to break through just before 08.00.
