Cooler yet cooler!

The maximum of 16.8C at 16.54 on Wednesday was the coolest day this month thanks to the pool of Arctic air being brought across the UK, this peak was 3.8C below my 40-year average. The westerly breeze was brisk with a maximum gust of 18mph. The last night was not as cold as the previous as the thermometer dropped no lower than 7.4C, however, this was 2.8C blow average.

Thursday began dull but with a modest rise in the barometric pressure thanks to a modest ridge of high pressure just to the south, which is likely to produce a dry and bright day.
