Sun by day and frost by night – just!

Tuesday brought us welcome, if limited outshine, totalling 1.2 hours that help to lift the thermometer to a peak of 6.5C being 0.6C below the average in the brisk west-southwest breeze gusting to 25mph peak. It was a dry day.

Overnight the temperature dropped to -0.1 at 01.18 Friday morning, which produced a light air frost that was quite pronounced visually after the many hours of rain during the previous day when everything was saturated.

Friday arrived with much blue sky and the promise of sunshine when the sun rises above the low cloud bank on the eastern horizon. The thermometer at 08.00 had recovered to 0.8C.
