Default Penzance - Much warmer night. May sunshine should hit 100 hours today

The SE breeze helped keep the minimum temperature up to 11.1C last night.

Another sunny day, just a few wisps of high cloud. Much breezier though, that will restrict the temperature near the south coast. If the wind backed just 10 degrees it would make Penzance warmer.

Camborne & Bosullow should hit the 100 hours of sunshine mark today. When Penzance had sunshine, May was the sunniest month, the cold sea helps. These days the official extreme lists are pretty meaningless. Both Falmouth & Penzance have been the sunniest place in the UK over a year, Falmouth coming 2nd for the sunniest ever year. Now we have just Culdrose & Camborne, so west Cornwall has officially become less sunny.

May sunshine now up to 100 hours even up at Bosullow on the moors behind Penzance.

Blustery ESE breeze today has limited the temperature change. 11.1C minimum, 15.4C maximum. Wind's stayed just onshore. Unbroken sunshine (so far)

No surf, https://surfbeachbar.co.uk/sennen-web-cam/ , though forecast to pick up tomorrow. Great wind / kite surfing conditions in Mount's Bay.

West Cornwall, the Lleyn peninsula and the Hebrides have appeared to have done best for sunshine this month - so far.

Unbroken sunshine all day has pushed the monthly sunshine total passed
100 hours here too Graham. As of 19:15 the total is 104 hours.

Mind you, the temperature never got that high despite the intense,
scorching sunshine as there was a stiff breeze blowing in off the sea
that kept the temperature pegged back to a maximum of 16.1C.

The annual sunshine total now at 665 hours. To this date last year there
had been 542 hours, and the year went on to a total of 1938 hours.

Noticed a picture on your website of the 'Gry' in Penzance harbour, caught my eye because I used to work for the company.

Apart from that easterly breeze, which should hopefully decrease slowly tomorrow, another good day.

It's surprising how many people who stay in St Ives never venture along the north coast to Zennor & Pendeen, a totally different world.

Cape Cornwall & Sennen Cove today (visited Levant Monday). Well windy up by the
chimney!

(Wrangled a tour of Gry a few years ago 'cos I'd previously built a scale model
of her - see under 'Model Boats'. I see she's had a new paint job since then).

Bet it was. Fresh / Strong SE winds are often strongest (in Cornwall) near the north (offshore) coast, all rather surprising & certainly against the forecasts.

I posted this about 2 or 3 days ago https://groups.google.com/forum/?hl=...er/1d9BNvM9I44 in the hope of some explanation.

If the SE wind is lighter, then a north coast sea breeze circulation is able to develop. If the sea breeze front stays just offshore it can result in near calm conditions on north coast beaches. At Sennen you can see attempts by the sea breeze to get ashore, by the ruffled patches of water. If it does reach shore you feel the temperature drop!

(Wrangled a tour of Gry a few years ago 'cos I'd previously built a scale model
of her - see under 'Model Boats'. I see she's had a new paint job since then).


She was due to be replaced by the 'Mali Rose 2' years ago, but that boat proved an unmitigated disaster that led to the resignation of the Chairman & the 'Return of the Gry' (It was renamed the Mali Celeste locally!)

Atmospheric waves in stable air are often the cause of this phenomenon
e.g. the very strong winds that Ken often experiences in Copley in
westerlies. In Largs, Ayrshire, where I spent my boyhood, the strongest
winds are easterlies, even though the hills to the east rise steeply to
1000 ft and more. I think Crete is also very prone to this with the
leeward coast getting stronger winds than the windward coast.

Thanks Norman, it's certainly in stable conditions it's most noticeable.

Frontal cloud just thick enough to stop the recording of sunshine so far today, though the sun's disc is visible. It's a good while since we've had a sunless day
