Colder again

The thermometer struggled to reach a maximum of 6.7C on Sunday being 3.8C below the 38-year average and made it the coldest day since 25th of January. The brisk wind from the northeast, gusting at its peak to 26mph, produced a wind chill for the second day that meant outside it felt at least 2C cooler than that indicated on a thermometer.

The past night has been cool with the thermometer dropping to 0.3C at 03.49 on Monday.

Monday at first brought brief breaks in the cloud that allowed very brief spells of brightness but not strong sunshine.

The barometric pressure is beginning to drop as the centre of the anticyclone, currently over Northern England, migrates to Denmark that will mean the wind veers a little further to come from the east and east-southeast.
