Wet by day and night on Friday

Friday saw the rain arrive just before 09.00 with light spots but mid-morning the real rain set in for much of the day with another pulse in the early hours of Saturday amounting to 9.3mm. That daily total brought the monthly total to 21.9mm when the average is 59.2mm.

Due to the cloud and rain, even though the warmer southerly breeze continued, the maximum temperature was depressed with a peak of 10.0C, which was 0.5C below the average. The overnight minimum of 5.6C occurred at 05.38 on Saturday, which was 3.2C above the 38-year average.

Saturday brought glimpses of sunshine after dawn as cloud eased away to the east with the southerly breeze still flowing.
