Thanks to the much warmer air flow from the south the thermometer rose to 18.3C being 4.2C above the average and the warmest day since 7th October. The UV level edged higher again to register 4.7, the highest since 17th September. However, the southeasterly wind was very gusty with a peak of 27mph.
The overnight minimum of 5.7C was also above average (+2.0C) due to the increase in cloud. Light rain showers occurred around dawn and again just before 07.30 but only amounting to 0.3mm.
Tuesday arrived with low cloud and the threat of more rain imminent, the wind having subsided.
