Much more benign here today, though we had several sharp showers this morning.

Since 00:00
Maximum temperature: 16.5C (at 1217)
Minimum temperature: 8.7C (at 0537)
Rainfall total: 2.8 mm
Mean wind speed/dir: 2.6 mph SSW
Highest gust: 14 mph

Current conditions (1800):
Temp: 14.7C
Humidity: 75%
Dewpoint: 10.5C
Wind: 1.8 mph (10 min average) SSW
Cloud: 7/8 Cu and Ci

For June so far:
Mean max 15.9C
Mean min 11.3C
Rainfall: 55.2 mm
Highest max: 20.7C
Lowest min: 8.7C
Highest rain in one day: 17.8 mm on the 7th,
According to my estimate of the 30-year means for Paignton, based on the met Office's averages for Teignmouth and using the mapped averages, the rainfall average is 55mm for June, which we have reached already.
The average max temp for June is normally 18.5C and the min 11.0, so the max is some way below normal.
