Gloomy, wet day on Wednesday – no sun, no UV

Wednesday was dominated by thick, low cloud all day with rain starting just after noon producing 6.7mm of precipitation bringing the December total to 31.5mm. Due to the mild Atlantic air the thermometer returned a maximum figure above average (+4C) of 11.8C.

No sunshine occurred and the UV level was 0, not surprisingly, the first day that this has occurred in December.

Thursday started dry with the cloud base a little higher after a very mild night when the thermometer did not drop below 9.5C (at 00.20), which was 7.6C above average.
