Barometric pressure falling steadily

Thursday brought us a dry day with 4.6 hours of sunshine and the UV level at 1.1, the highest strength since 7th November.

The initial fog slowly cleared by 11.00 to allow the sun to raise the thermometer from its low start of -2.3 to a maximum of 8.7C being 1.2C above average.

Overnight the fog returned, limiting viability at dawn to 300m and allowing the temperature to fall to a low of 0.8C. The barometric pressure has fallen from its high of 1037.9mb to 1019.6mb as the anticyclone eases away over the continent and the next depression, named Storm Ciara, to approach the UK.
