Postby Nick Gardner » 2014 Mar 19, 19:11

Over 7 hours of sunshine today has brought the monthly total to 102 hours.

As well as being a sunny March so far it has also been a warm one, especially by day making it more akin to April.

March 1st - 19th:
Mean minimum = 4.0°C
Mean maximum = 13.5°C
Mean = 8.7°C.
Rain = 18.8 mm.

Skylarks and chiff chaffs singing. The Devon Bank is coming alive now with red campion and greater stitchwort. This Spring is well-advanced and such a lovely contrast to last year.

The fairly sunny conditions have continued with very few in the way of showers (some overnight last night but none during daylight) and lengthy sunny periods.

Sunday 23rd:
Minimum = 2.1°C
Maximum = 11.8°C
Sunshine = 10.1 hours.
Rain = 3.1 mm.

As usual at this time of year, the breeze was quite cold but with a bit of shelter it felt pleasantly warm to sit outside this afternoon and enjoy the cloudscapes.

Monthly sunshine total (1st - 23rd) now up to 127 hours.
