Warm to cold as wind direction changes again

Although the warm air persisted on Thursday until just after midday the wind, then coming from the cooler north, saw the thermometer begin to fall away. By 17.00 the thermometer read 4.6C and at 22.00 had dropped further to 2.0C. The minimum of 0C was reached at 06.27 on Friday morning. The strong wind gusting to 26mph produced a wind chill so that it felt up to 2C below that registered on a thermometer.

Another 1.8mm of rainfall was recorded that brought the monthly total to 14.9mm when the average is 90.5mm.

Friday brought another dark and gloomy start to the day with thick cloud. The wind had veered further into the north-northeast but much lighter than the wind on Thursday.
