November 18th - First <10°C Day, brrrr!

It came as a big shock to the system.... Nasty cold rain and a maximum today of only 7.1°C making it the first sub-10°C day since the 20th March and the lowest maximum since the 20th January.

I even saw that there had been a dusting of snow on the top of the Blackdown Hills. Blimey, rather unusual for November.

Still, a couple hours of dazzling sunshine warmed the cockles a little.
