A glorious day of unbroken, strong sunshine. Barely a breath of wind, making it feel much warmer than the actual temperature.

A crystal clear, calm night gave a rather chillier night than expected.

Min = 1.4°C (07:24)
Max = 12.4°C (13:38)
Rain = 0.0 mm
Sunshine = 9.9 hours.

Monthly sunshine total now up to 88 hours. I had expected this month to easily exceed 100 hours but recent disappointing sunshine levels (22nd to the 25th) put paid to that. The last really sunny February was in 2008 with 135 hours.

(18:30), 8.1°C, RH 88%, DP 6.3°C, 1028 hPa (Steady), Wind calm.
