Northerly breeze brings chill on Tuesday

As the depression relocated over the continent the wind on Tuesday came from the north initially that brought much cooler air. In fact the temperature dropped 4C after 08.00 to hover round 2C or 3C for most of the day. A light sleet shower was observed just after 14.30 with the daily precipitation amounting to 1.8mm.

With a clearing sky after midday we enjoyed almost an hour of strong sunshine. The clearing sky brought the expected drop in temperature overnight with a minimum of 0.2C producing a ground frost. The wind backed into the west shortly before 17.00.

Wednesday brought glorious sunshine as soon as the sun rose above the horizon. A ridge of high pressure, current pressure of 1013.8mb, is likely to produce a sunny day, if cool. The temperature by 08.00 had eased upwards a trifle to read 0.8C
