Warm and sunny again

The wind on Thursday was gentle, maximum of 10mph at head height, and for most of the day came from the west but late afternoon it backed into the south. This warmer direction meant a warm day with the thermometer climbing to 20.8C being 3.3C above the 38-year average.

Cloud built up late evening ahead of the next rain-band that meant another mild night with a low of 10.9C, which was 4.4C above the average.

Friday dawned dull and overcast with a few spots of rain that by 08.15 had turned to continuous light rain.
