    Overcast and breezy with a few spots of rain in the air, currently 4.6 deg C.  Clear spells overnight led to a sharp frost around midnight with a low of -3.2.

     

    Interestingly, I have usually recorded slightly milder overnight temperatures than up the hill at Reading University but this season the situation seems to be reversed (for example, last night the university recorded a minimum of -2.1).

     

    We are in a densely populated area of terraced houses near the town centre, so I always put the difference before down to the urban heat island effect, and my thermometer is shaded but not enclosed so the exposure is non-standard.  But I'm still wondering what's changed.  It might of course be that I need to recalibrate my thermometer or even that something has changed at the university site, but another possibility is that they have recently installed a high fence on top of the nearby railway embankment - I wonder if our area has become slightly more frost prone (as parts of Rickmansworth famously are because of the railway embankment)?

    A clear and cold start to last night but increasing cloud from late evening brought light snow during the early hours with a thin cover at 0330. Any lying snow had thawed by 0500 as the  temperature rose steadily and light-moderate rain set in, the 24 hr maximum was reached at 0821 immediately before the cold front which brought a short spell of heavy sleet and wet snow and a 3 degree fall in temperature.

    Currently it's cloudy with light sleet and a gusty NW wind.
