A bright morning with sunny intervals gave way to a cloudy but dry afternoon.

Min = 7.4°C
Max = 11.4°C
Rain = 0.0 mm
Sunshine = 1.7 hours.

The sunshine is gaining power quite quickly now, 835 W/m² at 12:30 and a UV Index of 2.3. The high solar irradiance suggests a lot of relected light from clouds.

With light winds, it was another very pleasant spring-like day. Dawn chorus going well now, and plenty of insects are emerging such as bumblebees. They must think spring has arrived.

A mild, cloudy evening.

(19:30), 8.4°C, RH 81%, DP 5.5°C, 1029 hPa (S), Wind 3 mph NW.
