Mild, moist Atlantic air dominates

The Atlantic air mass brought us, as can be expected from travelling over a large sea area, mild and moist air. The morning on Friday was dry and warm but during the afternoon, light showers of drizzly rain occurred and more heavy showers began again after 01.00 on Saturday morning amounting to 3.2mm.

The peak temperature of 19.9C on Friday was 3.6C below average. Overnight, due to the heavy cloud cover and very mild air, the thermometer did not drop below 13.7C. The wind abated overnight after a breezy day with a maximum guts of 28mph at 20.35.

Saturday arrived with thick, low cloud and bursts of drizzly rain, the wind being light.
