Morning folks.

No surprise this morning too see a light dusting on cars this morning from the remains of the system that moved much further north than predicted. Less cold than recent nights and a thaw continued well into the night.

Temp -0.1C

Wind f1

Rainfall unmeasured as yet most likely trace.

Fun of the fair. 30 miles between them, but Dover has temperatures above 0c for the next 30 hours, whilst Calais is firmly below 0c for the next 48 hours at the least.

North Sea does really change our weather, especially on weeks like these!

Slight frost last night.

Mainly cloudy with occasional light sleet and snow flurries. Moderate snow mid to late afternoon gave a thin fresh covering.

There was some heavy snow at times in Carmarthen during the morning at work, again giving a thin covering there.

Very cold with a light to moderate east breeze. Only a slight thaw today.

A light dusting of snow this morning, but the thaw has set in and we're now down to around 25% coverage on grass and the roads and pavements are more or less clear. Last night was the first for over a week without an air frost. Cloudy all day with occasional light snow flurries becoming increasingly sleety in the afternoon. Maximum 2.3, minimum 0.5. Wind light NE.
