A frankly parky 3.6C minimum at the Pett Bottom site this morning. Probably the coldest PWS in Kent (as it often is on still nights).

Happy Summer Solstice everyone.

From here, the gradual descent towards winter starts as it will now very slowly and gradually start to get darker at nights again from now on.

However, too much cloud in the way prevented any decent view last night of what would have been the most spectacular view of the entire year, of the lingering overnight twilight which occurs as a result of the nights being so short at this time of the year.

However, last night was a lot warmer than the previous night as a result of all of that cloud cover and last night's overnight temperature at Edinburgh Gogarbank was 12.6°C which is much more typical of what we should be expecting at this time of the year (it is summer after all).

In addition to that, there was even a little bit of rain during the early hours of this morning.

That rain has now cleared away after resulting in a total of just 1.0 mm of rain being recorded at Edinburgh Gogarbank along with 0.4 mm at the botanic gardens in Edinburgh.

I don't want to be seeing any water shortages and/or restrictions here and don't really enjoy having to go on about that on this forum but if we really want to be preventing any of that from actually happening before too long, our totals need to much better than that and be occurring more regularly than what we are seeing just now.

As I write, it it still overcast although I'm sure that the Sun will probably make its usual appearance before too long with the usual dry weather still ongoing.

Meanwhile, the temperature at 7am BST (06:00 UTC) this morning was around 13°C here in Edinburgh.

Fair but with quite a lot of high cloud courtesy of France. 

A pleasantly mild-feeling 18.5 C & 77% H, especially as winds has fallen light.

Today has remained every bit as bone dry here in Edinburgh as I expected it to be, other than just the slightest smidgen of drizzle which I felt in the air when I have been out and about.

However, the Sun still hasn't come out here. It remains mostly overcast here and although there has been the odd break in that cloud, none of those breaks have been in the right place up until now to allow us to see even as much as a glimpse of the Sun.

As a result, absolutely nothing in the way of sunshine has been recorded for today so far at Edinburgh Gogarbank as at 2pm BST (13:00 UTC) this afternoon.

However, the temperature at 2pm BST (13:00 UTC) this afternoon here in Edinburgh was around 17°C which isn't all that far away from the average for this time of the year, so you can imagine from that, that it could actually get quite warm here today if only the Sun was to actually come out.

(Feels like models are somewhat overstating the gloom and doom up here, as it has been "mostly" very pleasant and summery for a number of days. And 33mm of rain mtd, most of which fell in two bursts)

There is now a lot more in the way of blue sky here in Edinburgh than what there was earlier on, but hardly any of that is actually getting into the right place for us to be able to see any decent sunshine.

That is means that although today is the longest day in terms of daylight hours, that hasn't prevented a total of just 1.5 hours of sunshine from being recorded for the whole of today so far at Edinburgh Gogarbank as at 7pm BST (18:00 UTC) this evening which is a lot less than the maximum amount of possible sunshine which we could get even on the winter solstice, and that is very poor indeed.

However, there's been nothing wrong with today's temperatures despite that lack of sunshine and today's maximum temperature at Edinburgh Gogarbank still managed to reach 20.6°C.

Even at 7pm BST (18:00 UTC) this evening, the temperature here in Edinburgh was still around 20°C.
