Sunniest day this month on Saturday

Saturday gave us the sunniest day this month, after Friday, that saw the thermometer ease upwards a degree to peak at 17.4C. This high was 1.5C below the 38-year average due to the continuing northerly breeze.

The barometric pressure rose to its highest this month on Saturday with a reading of 1024.7mb.

Clear skies overnight gave us another cool night, not quite so cold as the previous night, as there was no grass frost in evidence due to a minimum of 4.3C at 07.16 on Sunday.

Sunday saw the arrival of the sun delayed by an hour or so after dawn due to a cloud bank in the eastern sky. However, just after 7.45 the sun began to rise above the cloud cover and lifted the thermometer to 5.2C. Pressure remains high although more cloud is likely.
