    Clear with very severe April frost last night, the lowest reading I have ever recorded in April by a margin.

    Sunny today with a light NE breeze.

    Clear and frost has reformed this evening.

    -0.7C already, there will possibly be record breaking minima tonight if it continues to fall at this extraordinary rate (which it will).. it's quite remarkable for April, and no other opening April in my lifetime can boast 6 consecutive air frosts... no year even comes close.
