Coldest day for eight months

The very cold air from the northwest combined with no sunshine, the fifth this month, meant a very cool day on Wednesday. The thermometer did not rise above 6.6C, which was 3.5C below average and the coldest day since 7th March. It was also the seventeenth dry day in November.

Overnight the temperature dropped away to a minimum of 1.6C just before dawn on Thursday, that arrived with blue sky and sunshine after sunrise. The wind continues from the north.
