Dreary, damp day on Friday

A slow moving weather front over southern England meant a cool, damp day on Friday with hours of drizzle and light rain amounting to very little, 0.7mm, just unpleasant. The thermometer did not reach an average maximum with a peak of 20.8C (-0.3C) in the southerly wind gusting to 20mph at times.

Even the overnight minimum was below average (-0.8C) with a low of 10.9C.

Saturday arrived overcast but at least was dry. With the ridge of high pressure slightly higher today. the highest this month, it should be a better day than yesterday but the weather front is still plaguing the area.
