Your low temperatures got me to check if I'd ever recorded a single figure maxima in May. I have, just once, 9.0C on 17th May 1996. 1996 was easily my coldest May on record. Lowest Max this month 12.0 on 5th, probably will be marginally higher today (Update Max was 12.7C).

South coast very sheltered at the moment. http://www.minack.com/webcamsref.htm
