Warmth rises again by day but cooler night

Friday saw the thermometer rise to 24.2C being 1.5C above the 35-year average as we enjoyed 11.3 hours of strong sunshine. The past night was much cooler as the thermometer fell away to 10.9C, which was the coolest night since 6th July and 0.9C below average.

Another dry day, only one damp day this month so far, and UV again very high.

Saturday morning started glorious with blue skies and continuous sunshine, however, just before 07.25 cloud began to encroach so that by 07.40 the sun had been completely obscured.
