Dense fog blankets the area on Monday

Although the thermometer rose slightly higher on Sunday than Saturday the maximum temperature was still below average with a peak of 11.4C (-2.6C) due to the light northeasterly air flow.

Overnight, as on Saturday night, the thick cloud meant an above average minimum of 6.4C (+2.1C).

Monday arrived with thick cloud shrouding the Marlborough Downs producing a dense fog with visibility down to 150m and light drizzle. The air is calm with no perceivable movement at 08.00 so this situation will not help to thin the fog.
