No sun, no UV and even no global sunshine on Saturday

Saturday saw low, thick cloud cover all day that produced another gloomy day. No global sunshine was recorded at the rate of 100w/sq.m due to the density of the cloud. Another 5.1mm of rainfall was recorded that brought the monthly total to 88.9mm, which is just 3mmm below the 35-year average.

The maximum of 9.7C was below average, the eighteenth consecutive below average day, but that did not occur until mid-evening at 20.26 as the thermometer had slowly been rising all day.

Overnight the cloud and mist persisted into Sunday with a reading of 8.1C at 08.00 Sunday morning.
