Past Week’s Weather
Still no signs of a proper ‘summery’ spell yet? It was generally unsettled with showers or longer spells of rain. Thursday was notable for some exceptional weather (see below for more details)!
Some sunshine, especially on Wed, Thu and Sat. Also spells of rain/ sleet, but very little lying snow. Sunday was particularly dull with rain, drizzle and low cloud. Strong west or northerly winds were notable at times, especially Thu pm.
Another week of sunshine and scattered showers. Friday morning saw some particularly miserable conditions across the island with some heavier showers.
Apart from Thursday, which was cool, very windy and showery, it was a fairly good week with a few sunny intervals and some, mainly light, showers. Any heavier showers generally occurred overnight.
Wow – what a summer’s day in the
