Barometric pressure rises significantly

With the barometric pressure building on Sunday, from a ridge of high pressure edging in from the Atlantic, we had a little sunshine, 1.4 hours, after two consecutive sunless day. There was a brief shower amounting to 0.2mm, so not quite a dry day. The wind from the north was light during most of the past twenty-four hours but coming from a cold quarter restricted the temperature to a maximum of just 7.7C, again below average (-2.4C)

Overnight the wind was light and the sky much clearer so a minimum of 3.1C was recorded, just below average.

Monday arrived with weak sunshine initially as mist and fog began to lift. The barometric pressure at 08.00 read 1017.2mb, the highest reading in November so a day or two of drier and more settled weather are imminent.
