Well it rained here, but not a lot, 0.7mm. Lasted about an hour.

Quite a sharp clearance to this (15:50).

The visibility has improved markedly.

This a photo I took around 11:00 at Hell's Mouth near Godrevy.

Not the best conditions for photography. The horizon is there somewhere, you just can't see it. A few seals around, but not many.

Sorry, the rest is OT, you have been warned!
The road was packed with surfers vans for a mile going through Gwithian. There's a great wave and the previously free car park next to the Godrevy cafe has now been taken over by the NT so it's £4 few surfers are likely to pay. How they justify charging £4 to park on a bit of cliff which they have gradually spoilt by barriers etc, when the can't even be bothered to pay for a lifeguard at Godrevy (NT owned) because it's cheaper to put up a sign saying it's dangerous to swim, when except at high tide it's normally safer than Hayle or Godrevy. As for the tarmac coach park & 'visitor centre' at Bedruthan Steps, or the Poldark horror they created at the Count House at Botallack which used to be a wonderful folk club. (Geevor is still in the hands of ex miners, and is still a quite moving place to visit.) 

Still mustn't grumble.

Light rain here 1745 to 1830 which gave 0.5 mm.
Timing of rain in forecast is not too bad,
but BBC/Meteogroup must be the winners regarding light rain.
