Almost but not quite a dry day on Monday

There was a little brightness during Monday morning although the most notable feature was the run of southwesterly wind, which was due, and is on Tuesday, to a large area of high pressure centred over the continent bringing the Tropical Maritime air mass from the Atlantic off the North African coast. As a result the temperature varied very little over the past twenty-four hours with a maximum of 12.2C (+2.2C) logged at 22.25 and a minimum of 11.1C (+7.4C) both well above average.

There was a minor shower at 19.25 that amounted to 0.6mm.

Tuesday arrived with the cloud base higher and a little thinner allowing some brightness first thing and a burst of weak sunshine just before 08.30.
