Calm before another storm!

Most of the daylight hours on Thursday were dry, just a modest shower amounting to 1.1mm. The westerly wind gusting to 27mph, meant tat the clouds moved along swiftly allowing 2.3 hours of sunshine.

The maximum temperature of 8.7C was 1.2C above the 35-year average, in fact we have only had two days in February when maxima were below average.

Clearer skies overnight meant a cool night with the temperature dropping to 1.9C at 07.42 on Friday morning that saw hazy sunshine after dawn.
