Very cool north-northeasterly breeze prevails

The brisk north-northeasterly breeze gusting briskly to 27mph, meant a cool day on Monday. The thermometer eventually reached 4.2C being 2.9C below average. The strength and direction of the wind meant a wind chill was prevalent all day and night that meant often it felt up to 2C cooler than registered on the thermometer.

The coolest part of the past night occurred just after dawn at 08.16 when the thermometer registered briefly -0.2C being 1.6C below the 36-year average.

Tuesday arrived with a brighter sky than on Monday, the cloud being much higher and thinner.
