Mostly cloudy this morning with sunny spells before the showers bubbled up into the afternoon giving several heavy downpours, one with hail aswell.

The mildest part of the day was mid-morning with a max temp of 11.2C.

Currently 7.2C and 94% humidity. 5.6mm of rain has fallen so far.

April has now seen 109% of the monthly average rainfall in the first 11 days and more than January-March combined.

Sunny intervals and a couple of light showers, the latest looking set to get heavier and with the first thunder I've heard so far this year. Current conditions: thunder, 12.8 deg C, wind light NW. Today's maximum 14.0, last night's minimum 1.3.

Edit: the latest shower has indeed turned heavy, with some good sized hail (around 10mm diameter) mixed in.

Started with a visible ground frost min of 2.5c then a classic april showers day but with some larger than normal CB`s spectacular at that,heavy hail shower.

Later a few anvils one gave a crack of thunder to the west.

A few snow drifts still remain from last weeks blizzard.

Nothing of interest to report here. Lots of convective clouds which were very dark at times suggesting a heavy downpour was on the way but ended up with nothing more than a few spots of rain.

A more prolonged drizzly shower around 6pm gave out 0.2mm which as far as I'm concerned is the worst rain total to get. Yet to see a dry day this month and may have a long wait to see one by the looks of things.

Close to 6 hours of sun which makes it the sunniest day of a dire April so far and only the 2nd day of the month to even get as much as 3 hours.

No interest from the temperatures either. Fairly mild last night with a min of 4.7C and a near average max of 11.1C today.

A mainly dry morning with sunny intervals. Cloudier during the afternoon, though still with sunny intervals, and with a few short light showers of rain and small hail. A lot of Cbs around during the afternoon but it wasn't until 1700 that any heavier showers affected this area. We then had a fairly heavy shower of rain and hail up to 5mm and less than 1 km away the fields were white with hail for an hour or so after this shower. Occasional short showers of rain and small hail have continued into the early evening.
