Sunniest day for almost two months on Friday

Friday brought us clear skies, with wispy cloud, for most of the the day producing 6.45 hours of strong sunshine, the sunniest day since 18th November.

Nevertheless, the thermometer resolutely refused to get above 1.3C, which was 5.7C below average, due to the very hard frost overnight and a gentle air movement from the Northwest.

Initially, the past evening saw the thermometer fall away to a minimum of -3.2C at 21.02 before cloud once again covered the sky with the the thermometer slowly rising to 0.4C at 08.00 Saturday morning.

Apologies that there are ongoing technical difficulties with the Daily Statistics pages for 2019, which I hope will be resolved soon.
