Significant change in wind direction

Wednesday arrived with ex-storm Sebastien easing eastwards over the country with yet more rain but light winds. The daily rainfall was 4.9mm bringing the monthly total to 108.2mm.

As the depression traversed the country, initially the wind was from the south but by mid-morning began to back into the east and later in the day was coming from the northwest.

As a consequence of the cooler air the maximum returned to below average with a peak of 9.6C (-0.5C).

Overnight cloud meant another mild night but before dawn the cloud cover eased away to the east allowing the thermometer to drop to 6.2C at 08.00 Thursday morning.
