The southerly stream of mild, moist air continued on Saturday that raised the thermometer to 12.9C at 15.02. This was the warmest day since 21st December and a significant 5.2C above the 37-year average. There was a little brightness late morning that saw the UV level rise to 1.6, still in the low category but the highest level since 23rd October.
There was a little light rain in the morning and again overnight but amounting to just 0.5mm.
Due to the persistence of low cloud providing a duvet, little warmth escaped into the atmosphere overnight that saw a minimum of 9.4C at 06.15. This was the warmest night since 18th November and almost 8C above the long-term average and 1.7C above the average maximum for February.
Sunday started like so many recently with low, thick cloud and the southerly airstream light. A depression to the north west of the UK, rotating anticlockwise as they do, continues to feed the mild air from Iberia.
