Temperatures rise again

On Monday the thermometer rose higher again reaching a maximum 13.1C, which was 3C above the average and the warmest day since 17th September. The wind was lighter with a maximum gust of 19mph and had veered from the cool Northeast to a slightly less cold easterly. The higher temperature and reduced wind strength gave us a pleasanter day.

We have now had four consecutive dry days thanks to the high pressure that is maintaining its strength and influence. The UV level eased upwards again to a value of 3.3, which is classed as ‘Moderate’.

Overnight was less cold with a minimum of 2.9C at 01.11 on Tuesday morning, giving a slight ground frost. However, under the influence of strong sunshine after dawn the thermometer had recovered to 7.4C at 08.00
