A little less cold but only just!

There was welcome sunshine on Saturday amounting to 2.7 hours that allowed the thermometer to rise a degree above the Friday maximum with a peak of 3.3C but this was still 3.8C below average. A couple of light snow showers were observed at 1545 and 1630 however it melted away shortly afterwards as the thermometer indicated that the air temperature was just above freezing at that time but dropped to 1.1C a little later. The minimum of -0.1C was logged briefly around 2130.

Cloud cover overnight meant the temperature recovered a little to register 1.7C at 08.00 on Sunday under low, thick cloud giving misty conditions. As the high pressure relocated to the east the wind veered into the north-north-east although still light.
