Ex- hurricane Oscar brings change overnight

Friday gave us 7.93 hours of strong sunshine that lifted the temperature to a maximum of 10.8C being 0.7C above average for November.

During the evening the thermometer steadily fell to a minimum of 0.6C just after 8pm but then the trend was reversed and started to rise as ex-hurricane Oscar, passing to the west of the country, meant a change in wind direction from West into a more Southerly air stream.

Saturday arrived with a bright start as the cloud bank eased away to the east with weak sunshine through variable cloud.
