Following along in good tradition from April, this May has turned out to be another sunny one so far.
Sunshine total for the month has passed 200 hours and now stands at 201.2 hours. This brings the spring sunshine total to 563 hours, and the annual total to 762 hours.
Months with sunshine greater than 200 hours always have a ‘sunny feel’ to them (for want of a better phrase). And can occur in any month from April to September.
The number of times months since 2006 have exceeded 200 hours sunshine (though many more have come close):
April = 5
May = 8
June = 10
July = 8
August = 6
September = 3
The average sunshine for May for the last 14 years has been 204.2 hours.
