Sunday’s forecast was pretty much spot on with the low cloud clearing as expected giving most areas a glorious boost to the weekend with the temperature reaching 21C in many places.
However, it is fair to say that our forecast for Saturday was too optimistic in places with more cloud than forecast.
Indeed the air was a little more moist than expected and this meant the low cloud was slightly thicker and the October sun was not strong enough to burn the cloud away in central and eastern areas. This, combined with a fresh southeasterly wind, made it ‘feel’ quite chilly, especially along North Sea coasts and through the Thames Estuary.
However, in most places it was relatively warm for the time of year and where the sun did break through, in some sheltered parts of the south and west, the temperature reached 22C.
