High pressure leaves us!

The intense high pressure still exerted itself on Friday with 5.6 hours of sunshine but had lost 10mb of pressure as it eased away over the Continent. It was another dry day with the maximum of 10.7C being 0.8C above average. The wind all day was from the east or south-southeast but had picked up in strength with a peak gust of 20mph. Cloud and mist meant the thermometer did not fall below 4.1C, which was 0.4C above average.

Saturday was initially clear, just a little mist but by 07.45 fog was observed to the north that by 08.00 had drifted across the area limiting visibility to 400m.
