Frosty overnight but wearing off this morning with cold virgary NW cloud moving across from the west.
Some fine clear areas, with it becoming nice in the sun, but occasional high cold virgary cloud layers moving across made it feel quite cold.
Not much wind but from about a quarter to four, this afternoon, the SW freshened and on the odd occasion and is still doing so this evening.
Today's maximum was 12.4C.
