Feeling much colder today, with the wind swinging into a north easterly direction. The cloud is showing signs of breaking, and if it does the temperature should rise significantly since the wind is light. Visibility is vastly improved on yesterday and I would estimate it at around 15 miles.

Rainfall total: 0.0 mm
