Mild air continued on Monday

The air mass on Monday, coming from the south-southwest, brought another mild day with the thermometer rising to 10.4C after a chilly start. This peak was 0.4C above average. It is interesting to note that only one day this month has produced a below average daytime peak, which was the third when the maximum was 0.1C below average. The mean temperature for November is approximately 2C above average.

The temperature rose a degree during the late evening but after midnight fell away to a minimum of 9.0C being 5.3C above average. There was a light shower just after 03.00 that amounted to 0.7mm.

Tuesday saw cloud after dawn with the prospect of bright intervals later. Monday was another day with very light winds with a peak gust of 9mph but the wind is freshening this morning due to the barometric pressure falling away with a drop of 10mb over twenty-four hours as the anticyclone eases away and another depression advances from the Atlantic.
