Effect of Storm Lorenzo was minimal

The centre of the low pressure that was originally Hurricane Lorenzo passed over the area yesterday and brought with it much cloud and rain. As it travelled over land and the cool North Atlantic it lost it strength by the time it arrived over the UK. Fortunately the rainfall total was modest at 3.6mm and never very heavy. The day was breezy with a maximum gust of 16mph.

The thermometer rose to 13.7C by day, almost 1C below average, and over night was mild with a minimum of 8.4C, being 1.2C above the 35-year average.

Saturday arrived with a 8/8 cloud but by 08.00 was showing signs of some thinning.
