Anticyclone beginning to relinquish its control

On Sunday, due to early morning fog that drifted in after 09.00 and didn’t completely clear until midday, produced the coolest day in the past week with the temperature also influenced by the wind continuing to come from the east if modest in strength.

The temperature overnight fell to exactly 0C at 06.01 on Monday morning that after first light revealed that thick fog had developed limiting visibility to 150m.

The anticyclone that has been with us for eleven days is forecast to drift quickly away from the southern North Sea to Russia by midday. The wind will continue to come from the east and be light. The barometric pressure has dropped another 7mb since yesterday and 20 mb since its peak.
