Patchy cloud/mist & clear spells last night with a minimum of 9.2C. After some early mist & light drizzle, from 09:00 the morning saw good sunny periods. (See attached pic taken from my house @ 09:45 as the last of the mist cleared)

A thin SC sheet spread in around noon, but it remained bright.

Visibility good throughout the day, Lizard point very sharp from 10:00 with the visibility certainly 20 miles around noon. Small sea fog patches affecting parts of the nearby north coast from time to time earlier, but certainly no sign of it now http://www.sennen-cove.com/harbourcam.htm

Max 12.4C around 11:45
Rainfall to 09:00 today 0.1mm
Wind F2 NNW much of the day.
