Settled weather continues

Friday was dull and cool with thick cloud all day until a brief burst of sunshine came thorough early evening, but far too short. As a result of the northeasterly breeze and lack of sunshine the thermometer did not rise above 16.9C, which was 4.2C below average and the coolest day 29th June.

A cool night followed, not as cool the previous night but the minimum of 9.3C was 2.4C below average.

Saturday dawned with thick, low cloud covering the Marlborough Downs and Savernake Forest limiting visibility to around 1800m for the first hour after dawn. By 0730 the visibility had improved with the mist having dispersed.

Pressure remains high so a dry day is likely. However, the low cloud that had drifted in again overnight might be stubborn to disperse, as yesterday.
