Not Spring like with wind chill! Coldest day for six weeks.

The thermometer only rose to 7.0C on Saturday at 15.19 being 3.5C below average and the coldest day since 25th January. The wind from the north increased in strength during the morning, with a peak gust of 29mph, so that at 13.00 whilst the thermometer read 6.3C it felt more like 3C outside.

There were a couple of spots of rain in the wind in the afternoon and a little heavier early morning on Sunday amounting to 0.8mm.

The barometric pressure has risen to 1029.9mb by 08.00 on Sunday with the anticyclone easing from Northern Ireland to around the Edinburgh area at noon today so the wind currently coming from the northeast will veer into the east-northeast after midday.

Once again a new day was greeted with total cloud cover as the persistent weather front that plagued the area on the 3rd and 4th migrated back eastwards to our area.
