Sunniest day since August 2018 on Sunday

With a total of 14.4 hours of sunshine and the wind coming from the west, a warmer direction than of late, the thermometer crept above average with a maximum of 17.9C (+0.8C). The UV level was again in the ‘Very High’ category.

The warmth continued overnight with a minimum of 8.8C being 1.8C above average and the second warmest night this month.

Hazy sunshine greeted the arrival of Monday as the high pressure continues to exert its influence with another dry day ahead, which would make it the 15th consecutive dry day in May. This is a very similar pattern to April that came to a halt with a downpour on the 17th.
