Eee, it's tough up north lad.

Still firmly in the warm air here today. Min 14.1C last night, 18.1C at 09:00 this morning, the 2nd highest reading at that time this year. The front was reluctant to move in and it remained bright with sunny spells until 13:00 or so. Last day the temperature failed to reach 16C was 19th May. On the other hand only 1 day in the same period has exceeded 21C. It's good to have a nice equable climate!

The rain seems to have cleared here now, < 1mm in total fell which was a bit of a surprise.
