A bright, sometimes sunny day but plauged with sea fog at times, especially early and late.

Min = 8.1°C
Max = 13.2°C
Rain = 0.0 mm
Sunshine = 7.1 hours.

The wind coming in from the sea, and the fog kept the temperature pegged back a little compared to just a mile or two inland but still a lovely day. The grass has taken on its green, thicker, lush Spring look over the last few days. Noticed the hawthorn starting leaf-burst in earnest and the blackbird now singing at dawn chorus - Spring must be here!

A mild, misty evening.

(21:30), 8.6°C, RH 96%, DP 8.0°C, 1024 hPa (R), Wind 3 mph SE.
