Six Days More Spring Sunshine

The island has had its fifth-sunniest Spring since records began.

Forecasters say we had 773 hours of sunshine across March, April and May.

That's 144 more than the 30-year average - the equivalent of the sun shining non-stop for six extra days.

It was also 94 more hours of sunshine than Guernsey.

Jersey also had a lot less rain than is normal for the time of year - with just 98mm recorded across the three months.


Last month was warmer, drier and sunnier than Jersey's average May.

There were almost 300 hours of sunshine - making it the eighth sunniest May since records began in 1894.

Data from Jersey Met shows we had less than a third of the usual amount of rain.
