Cool, but less cool on Sunday, although below average again

With some brightness on Sunday morning the thermometer crept up to a maximum of 11.9C at 14.14, which was 5.1C below average, after a very cold night. Fortunately the wind had dropped almost completely after the very breezy day on Saturday.

A cool night was to follow, but thankfully for gardeners no air frost. The thermometer dropped to a minimum of 2.2C at 06.24 Monday morning, which was 4.9C below the 35-year average.

Broken sunshine followed the dawn on Monday morning, with variable cloud, that lifted the temperature to 6.3C at 08.00.
