A misty morn (18 March 2016)

It a slightly misty start that greets us today but this mist will burn way as the day passes  It is, however, a clear indicator that the air pressure is high, the evening was cool and that there is little breeze about when you start the day with mist.

lat night’s minimum air temperature was 0.2c at 04:00 hours but we will see a maximum of around 7c achieved today.  It will not be as generally bright as yesterday with a lot of medium height cloud (around 6,000 feet) obscuring the sun for large periods of the day and, in particular during the afternoon.  Overnight the minimum temperature will be around 2c.

With the large cloud presence there is a slight risk of some drizzle (around 10%).

We are edging ever closer to the Spring Equinox (Sunday, 04:30 hours) and it is now noticeable that the day light hours are beginning to extend.  The summer will be with us in no time at all!

The wind will remain light throughout today.  The wind will be deriving from the NE but the average wind speed will only be around 5mph.

Summary: A misty start and then becoming generally cloudy.
