Changes afoot!

Friday was a repeat of previous days with a northeasterly breeze but it was cooler. The temperature did not get above the average as the peak of 11.8C was 2.3C below.

With the sky clear of cloud early evening the thermometer dropped steadily to produce a sharp air frost as the temperature dropped below freezing at 00.15 early Saturday with a minimum of -2.4C at 05.48, which was 6.1C below the average for April.

After dawn the sun shone strongly to raise the temperature to 5.0C at 08.00.

The centre of the anticyclone is forecast to move from North Wales to off the Devon coast today. Ask a result the wind will slowly veer from the east through south to probably south-southwest later today. At last we will lose the nagging northeasterly.
