Sun and lots of it on Friday!

The many hours of strong sunshine on Friday raised the temperature to 19.9C being 2.4C above the average. It would have been higher except for the fact that the wind after dawn veered from the west into the northwest, a cooler direction. The UV level of 7.0 was again rated as Very High.

The monthly rainfall still stands at 50.9mm against the 38-year average of 60.7mm. Set against that must be the equivalent loss of rainfall due to evaporation that so far this month amounts to 71mm.

It has been a very cool night with the thermometer dropping to 5.3C, which was 1.1C below the average.

Saturday brought a mainly sunny start to the day with light, variable cloud and the thermometer having recovered to 12.7C at 08.00 at which time the barometric pressure read 1027.0mb having strengthened 2mb since Friday.
