Minimal diurnal temperature variation

The temperature recovered slightly on Friday with a peak of 10.0C being just 0.1C below average due to the change in wind direction, then from the southwest. However, with thick cloud cover and a mild Atlantic airstream from the southwest the diurnal temperature (variation between day and night) was just 1.6C as the thermometer only dropped to a minimum of 8.4C overnight, which was 4.6C above the 37-year average.

Saturday arrived with thick cloud in place and no morning sunshine. The barometric pressure is currently at highest since 13th October with a reading at 08.00 of 1027.9mb. Usually a ridge of high pressure brings fine weather, however, we have the minimal wind conditions but much cloud is trapped below the anticyclone.
