Still mild

Both the maximum of 12.6C (+3.8C) and the overnight minimum of 6.0C (+4.5C) were above average on Wednesday. It was another dry day with the UV of 1.2 being, not surprisingly in early February, classed as ‘Low’. We enjoyed 4.4 hours of very welcome sunshine.

Thursday dawned with a totally cloudy sky and almost calm conditions, the wind continuing to come from the southwest or west-southwest. The barometric pressure has fallen away as the anticyclone eases away, with a reading of 1015.5mb at 08.00. This is a fall of 9mb since this time on Wednesday, the lowest it has been since 9th January.
