In Farnborough I recorded the first air frost of the season this morning, a min of -0.2C. Now it is gloriously sunny and the autumn colours shining brightly - the best of November!

First air frost on the coast here in Wembury last night.
Min -1.2C in my Stevenson screen.

Average date for first air frost here is 30th Nov.
Record back to 1985.

So a pretty average year.
