We enjoyed 6 hours of sunshine on Friday with a maximum temperature of 12.5C. This was the warmest day for a week but still 1.8C below the average. In fact we have yet to have a day in April when the thermometer gets above the 37-year average maximum.
A chilly night followed as the wind late afternoon on Friday, (17.00) began to veer into the north so a colder air flow arrived. The temperature dropped away to a minimum of 3.2C being 0.9C below average.
Saturday dawned dull with a large area of thick cloud producing occasional light drizzle but not measurable thus recorded as a trace. Currently at 08.00 the wind is very light and coming from the north-northeast.
