Barometric pressure highest all month

With rising barometric pressure on Monday there was far more sunshine, almost 10 hours, and only one very brief shower amounting to 0.4mm at 11.45. The wind was brisk from the west, gusting to 27mph, limiting the temperature to a peak of 19.2C being 1.7C below average.

It was a cool night with the thermometer slowly falling to a minimum of 10.7C at 06.26 Tuesday, which was 0.8C below average.

The barometric pressure has been rising for the past two days as the deep depression eased away into the North Sea, with a current reading on Tuesday at 08.00 of 1021.3mb. We therefore should have an even better day today as the sun shone brightly and continuously after dawn.
