Low pressure now influences our weather

Thursday saw the low pressure over the Northern North Sea slowly sink southwards producing a brisk northerly wind. The cooler air mass meant a significantly below average maximum of 14.4C (-5.6C). This was the coolest day since 14th May. It was a dry day with 3.4 hours of sunshine with the UV level just rising into the High category.

A cool night followed with the thermometer sinking to 9.9C, just below average.

Friday arrived with thick cloud blotting out any sunshine but just before 08.00 very brief bright intervals were observed.

With the depression moving closer to this area the barometric pressure has dropped to 996.3mb, its lowest reading since 1st May.
