May 2018 Commentary

The first day of May was very wet and rather miserable but the rest of the month was very pleasant with a lot of sunshine and warmth and not very much more rain

There was a brief hot spell over the first weekend and then after a few days of cooler weather, the temperature reached 20C or above on every day for the rest of the month apart from on the 24th when it only reached 19C. In the last week the night-time temperatures also remained fairly high and we then fully realised that summer had arrived.

Apart from the wet start, May was relatively dry and it was only when we experienced thunderstorms on the 21st and the 26th that we received heavy downpours which thankfully didn't last too long.

The average temperature for the month of May was 15.5C which is one and a half degrees above the norm but only a fraction above last year's figure and a fraction below the figure for May 2008. The total rainfall of 59.4mm compares with the average of 73.3mm over the last decade

The CA Street Party on the 19th had some lovely weather and plenty of tourists appeared in the village during this sunny month.
