Where has Spring got to?

With a maximum of only 11.9C on Saturday, being 2.2C below average followed by a hard frost with a minimum of -2.9C being 6.6C below average, it did not feel very Springlike in terms of warmth. At least we did have several hours of welcome sunshine on Saturday.

During the sunny periods the UV level rose to 4.4 being at the top end of the ‘Moderate’ range and the highest since 17th September.

Sunday brought sunshine from the start although very thin, high cloud was observed. The sunshine lifted the temperature to only 2.0C at 08.00 after the very cold night. The barometric pressure has risen further with a current pressure of 1020.1mb, however, with Atlantic depressions looming to the west this will soon begin to fall again.
