Much sunshine before the rain returns!

After a glorious start on Saturday with intense blue sky and strong sunshine, the cumulous clouds arrived late morning, however we did enjoy 10.1 hours of strong sunshine.

The thermometer slowly rose to a maximum of 16.4 during the late on the afternoon at 16.04. This peak was just below the average for early May. During the evening and overnight the warmth slowly ebbed away until a minimum of 6.4C was reached at 00.51 on Sunday morning, which was also just below the 36-year average. At this time cloud began to spread in ahead of another weather front.

Sunday saw the odd glimmer of weak sunshine after dawn before cloud, ahead of a rain band, arrived. The first spots of rain were noted at 07.50 and light rain began to fall at 8.00.
