More wet, mild and misty conditions

During the past twenty-four hours another 10.1mm of precipitation has been recorded that brought the monthly total to 46.6mm when the 37-year average is 92.2mm.

There was little variation in the temperatures by day and night with a maximum of 8.5C on Christmas Day and early on Boxing Day a minimum of 6.1C. The small diurnal range (2.4C) has been due to the continuing thick cloud that precluded any sunshine to boost the temperature but by night provided a duvet to keep any warmth in.

Boxing Day arrived as many previous days with thick, low cloud and fog that has been limiting visibility to 400m. The very light breeze has veered from the southeast on Saturday to the southwest on Sunday.
