IMT stays on 15.4 after 19 days, with the 19th at 15.0 C. Guidance suggests heat setting in by the weekend, the IMT could then return to the low 16 range (will likely continue a slow fall to 22nd, so from 15.2 then, average of 18 for last eight days would produce 16.3 C as final value.
MAX of 26.1 and MIN of 5.4 were not quite pushed out by a wide-ranging effort on 19th (24.6 OP and 6.6 Markree). These next two nights look like the last chance for MIN but MAX will have plenty of opportunities.
24h max rainfall contest now has a new leader with Newport at 33.2 mm. That pushes Mountdillon 30.9 into second. There is also a new third place value (previous second was Moorepark at 20.9) with Finner Camp (21.9) and Knock (21.7) both exceeding that. We can't quite declare this to be a final result as model guidance shows potential for heavy thunderstorm rainfalls on 30th, otherwise no rain expected.
PRC: The contest grid received 66.0 mm of rain, about 240% of a normal daily rate. This pushes the monthly average to 55% of normal. However, if no more rain falls, that will translate to 35% at end of month. Even a 200% day on 30th would leave the end of month at 50%.
SUN: There was only 12.7 hours total yesterday, about 38% of normal, and that leaves the month at 89% of normal. Guidance suggests a lot of sunshine to the end of the month. If we were to average 155% of normal the end of month average would then reach 115%.
