Dull but not cold this morning with 15.9c the min some 10c higher than Fri mornings low.

Sun predicted to come out this afternoon which is too late for much direct sunlight to fall on my place so hopefully it can warm temps into the lows 20s and get some much needed warmth into the house (still only 18c in here!).
