Ground frost but no air frost – just

The 7.6 hours of sunshine on Tuesday facilitated the thermometer to climb just a little higher than on Monday but with a maximum of 12.8C it was a cool day being 4.5C below average. A few spots of rain were observed, from a very small cloud at 15.30, but not measurable.

The significant feature about Tuesday was the UV level as for a short time it rose to 6.2, the highest since 26th September and in the ‘Very High’ category.

Wednesday started very sunny but a cloud bank moved in from the north at 08;00 that limited the recovery after a cold night. The thermometer dropped to 2.3C being 4.6C below average and producing ground frost but no air frost with a temperature of 5.6C at 08.00.

The centre of the depression is now over southern Scandinavia producing a light breeze now from the west-northwest.
