Ridge of high pressure continues fine weather

A ridge of high pressure, from the anticyclone centred to the north west of Scotland, maintained fine weather on Thursday with another 4 hours of sunshine. However, the north easterly wind, gusting again to 22mph, meant a cool day with the thermometer struggling to reach 11.6C, which was 3C below average.

It was almost a dry day, but not quite. A few shower clouds drifted over the area in the late afternoon that produced a few drops of rain but not measurable so recorded as a trace.

The thermometer dropped to 6.4C overnight being 0.7C below average.

Friday arrived with a cloudy sky and almost calm conditions.
