Tuesday was such a treat after so many wet days with 4.7 hours of sunshine and no rain. The wind starting from west, and veering into the northwest late morning, meant a cooler day with the thermometer reaching 14.8C being juts above average (+0.3C).
With the ridge of high pressure building overnight and the sky clearing it was no surprise to find a cool start to Wednesday with the thermometer sinking to 7.4C at 07.33 before rising to 8.0C at 08.00 as the sun got to work.
The almost clear sky and sunshine after sunrise gave a very pleasant start to the day, just the occasional wispy clouds. The anticyclone is centred over the Bay of Biscay and throwing a ridge of high pressure over the UK. The pressure at 08.00 was 1018.9mb, the highest for a week.
