First rainfall today in a couple of weeks. Don't have a record of the actual date of the last rainfall as my weather station died last month

will be interesting to see how cool this month turns out if the next 2 weeks is mostly cool. It's been a fairly cool and often cold month. The short to medium range models are pointing towards daytime temperatures mostly in the low to middle teens up to the end of the month.

Highest temps at my location so far this year:

January - 12C
February - 17C
March - 18C
April - 23C
May - 18C (so far)

Today wasn't great or anything but it wasn't as bad as I expected just by looking at the radar. Since last winter, whenever Met Éireann mentioned something like "showers and an easterly breeze", we usually ended up with a full wet day here.

A staggering 1.0 mm total today from that oddly slow moving band of rain, which makes it my wettest day this month so far. Still way not enough to water the camels or refill the ponds for the elephants to bathe in, but might settled the sand down for a while.

A peaceful gentle morning. Just enough breeze to keep the midges off and a few spots of rain now. Clouds climbing up the mountains... perfect.

Not so nice over in the south west today. Cool, very overcast and damp but seems to be improving as the day goes on.

Was brighter earlier on today quite dull now and of course cool. The roaster days reported in this thread earlier in the week never materialized really here.
