Sunniest April 2020 since records began (and here in Willand too!)

The UK just clocked up the sunniest April on record. 224.5 hours of sunshine. The previous record was 211.9 in April 2015.

Here in Willand we had 217.0 hours. Its a record for my site too – but that doesn’t mean a lot since I have only been recording sun properly since July last year – 2019.

The sunny weather has made Coronavirus lockdown bearable – we have been able to sit in the garden hour after hour and going on our daily walks has been lovely. Goodness knows what we would have done with ourselves if the weather had been inclement.

Stay safe.
