A little sunshine but far less rain on Monday

As the low pressure eased a little further away into the North Sea on Monday the clouds thinned and allowed us intermittent sunshine in the morning amounting to over 3 hours that lifted the thermometer close to the average with a maximum of 14.7C (+0.1C).

There were a couple of light showers mid-afternoon and one brief shower just before midnight that amounted to 1.5mmm bringing the monthly total to 113.3mm, which is 132% of the 36-year average.

Tuesday arrived with variable cloud but just after 08.00 the sun put in an appearance between the breaks. The minimum overnight was 10.0C being 2.9C above average.
