A mild, but generally cloudy day with just a few brief glimpses of the sun.

Min = 9.1°C
Max = 12.9°C
Rain = 0.0 mm
Sun = 0.6 hours.

Yesterday's high temperatures didn't happen here, too much cloud and wind coming in off the sea. In the end the max for the 23rd was 13.4°C and just 0.4 hours of sunshine, it remained dry though. The warmest day this year so far was on the 18th Jan with 13.6°C.

A mild, cloudy evening.
