Early promise did not materialise on Wednesday

Although Wednesday started bright the high cloud meant no sunshine and the UV level at 0. The cloud thickened as the morning progressed. The wind, a little more brisk than on recent days gusting to a peak of 18mph, varied between southwest and later in the day from the southeast. The thermometer rose to 5.4C being 2.6C below average. The slightly warmer air in the evening lifted the temperature to 6.6C and was held there for much of the night.

Thursday dawned with thick cloud and a low base that started the day very gloomy making the atmosphere misty but thankfully not low enough to produce fog. The temperature at 08.00 was 6.6C being the warmest start to a day this month at that time.
