Just a light frost here this morning, Down to -0.6 degrees.
Quite a bit of high cloud around so hopefully that doesn't trap the cold air in

I thought there was a frost this morning but it was a very heavy dew cover, over the grass this morning, probably being extra dewey owing to a shower in the very early hours of this morning as I found 0.5mm in the rain-gauge this afternoon. :smile:
