Sunny south coast

A fascinating visible satellite image this lunchtime from NOAA is showing sunshine right along the south coast of England from Sussex in the east to Cornwall in the west (fig 1). Once again, the demarcation zone is a little too far to the south of us here in mid-Devon so the sun has still to break through here. We missed out last week when the cloud edge was aligned south-north with the clear skies to the west, all I can think is that it must be down to that uplift in Willand. Convection has broken out across Cornwall and south Devon and I notice an isolated shower on the radar at 13 UTC.
