Another gloomy day on Monday

Although the barometric pressure had begun to rise on Monday the moist, dull weather meant another day without sunshine or any UV light. The southerly breeze was very light all day with a maximum gust of just 11mph. The thermometer rose just 4C during daylight hours to reach a maximum of 8.8C but hovered around 8.5C all night.

There were very brief and light showers on several occasions during the daytime that amounted to 2.4mm.

Tuesday arrived with mist and variable fog producing light drizzle that limited visibility to 900m. These conditions were due to a warm front crossing the area with more warm, moist air.

The barometric pressure continues to rise with a reading of 1028.1mb at 08.00 and rising rapidly.This is the highest pressure since 20th December.
