Although we enjoyed 3.6 hours of welcome sunshine on Friday the biting wind from the north east, peaking at 32mph, depressed temperatures. The maximum of 8.9C was 1.5C below average but wind chill meant if felt more like 6C.
It was a dry day, only the fourth this week, and the UV level in the strong bursts of sunshine rose to 3.2, which just edged into the ‘Moderate’ category.
A chilly night was to follow as the clear skies allowed the thermometer to drop to a minimum of 3.1C, just above average.
Saturday saw thin cloud drifting across on the brisk wind, veering from northeast to east allowing bursts of weak sunshine to break through.
