With an air frost and two nights of ground frost it was expected that the soil temperature would dip. However, with direct sunshine on the 3rd of 12.7 hours and much hazy sunshine on the 4th (direct sunshine of 1.8 hours), the 5cm depth soil temperature has recovered. Ultra violet radiation for both these days has been in the ‘High’ category.
At dawn the thermometer dropped to -1.0C, which was the coldest May night since 12th May 2010.
The record lowest temperature for May was set in 1984 with a minimum of -3.5C.
