Clear with a severe frost last night, the coldest night of 'Winter'.

Dry with sunny periods today, a light to moderate south to SW breeze. Milder than of late.

Min: -10.2c @ 0600

Max: 8.4c @ 1500

Rain yesterday: 0.7mm

Dry so far today

Currently: Clear intervals.

Temp: 3.7c

RH: 84%

Pressure: 1014mbar, falling.

Of note is that during the past 29 days, less than 5mm has fallen which makes it a partial drought (at least 29 consecutive days averaging below 0.2mm). No doubt this contributed to the severity of the frost last night with the ground now so dried out locally.

I was actually not far from your neck of the woods today TM and noted a rather impressive -6C in the car in one of the valleys just after 8am and there was a short spell of snow in the afternoon. Interesting to see that while it was 7C at home!
