Friday was the sunniest day for five months

With 8 hours of glorious sunshine on Friday it was the sunniest day since 2nd September. Not surprisingly, with light winds mainly from the south, the thermometer rose to a maximum of 9.1C, nearly 2C above average.

Overnight the thermometer fell away to a minimum of 0.1C at dawn when broken cloud allowed intermittent sunshine after the fog bank cleared that had arrived briefly just after 7am.
