Just missed air frost but ground frost

The wind backed into the north east again on Wednesday and became much stronger with a maximum gust of 26mph, which was the windiest day since the 6th. Although sunshine of 8.12 hours was almost exactly the same as on Tuesday the cool, strong wind depressed the temperatures although a maximum of 15.0C was just above average.

The thermometer fell slowly downwards overnight to a minimum of 0.9C at 05.33 that was just short of an air frost but a hard ground frost set in.

Thursday arrived with strong sunshine after dawn with thin high cloud taking the edge off its strength.

The barometric pressure has increased again as the centre of the high pressure relocated to just off The Wash with the wind forecast to come from the east on Thursday and a little lighter.
