Very different conditions down here in the shelter of the south coast of Devon. Despite the cool breeze there has been nearly 9 hours of intense sun shining through a deep blue sky allowing the temperature to reach 16.3°C. Just one fleeting light shower this morning that hardly wetted the surface.

Rain in the last 24 hours = 0.6 mm. Monthly total now at a rather wetter than average 54 mm.
