I've mentioned before that in the super-mild second week of February 1998, the warm sunshine struggled to penetrate as far north as the Tyne and Wear area, only really making it on the 13th. Although the satellite images on those forecasts imply a similar story for the January 1998 spell, there was actually a fair amount of hazy sunshine in Tyneside on the afternoon of the 9th, throughout the 10th, and for most of the day on the 11th, and most of the cloud cover was thin high cloud. Perhaps the greater southerly component to the wind direction helped the sunshine penetrate further north to the east of high ground. It was still grey and wet in the NW though.
