Friday turned out to be cold and wet. For an hour or so in the morning it was nice and sunny but the clouds soon rolled in and that was the last of the sunshine for the day.
Temperature & Rainfall for 18 November 2016
Around lunchtime the rain fell with some wet, sleety snow mixed in but it never showed any signs of settling. By the end of the day the day's rainfall came to 11.2mm (0.44ins), nothing exceptional. Through the daylight hours the temperature hovered around the 3.5°C (38.3°F), on the cold side even for late November. Without having any remarkably cold nights this November is so far turning out to be the coldest of the last few years.
