Dry but with thick cloud and so far looking like we have little chance of seeing the eclipse here. Might just catch a glimpse through the cloud towards the end if we're lucky. Currently 7.0 deg C after an overnight minimum of 4.8.

 

Yesterday: dry, cold, and dull. Maximum 7.6, minimum 5.2.  Wind light NE.

Friday 20th March 2015

 

Variable cloud overnight with a ground frost developing through the early hours in clear spells. Bright so far this morning, sunny spells. Observation through the solar eclipse from electronic instruments only..(Readings differ slightly from official recording thermometers.) Mostly sunny throughout, after an initial quickly rising temperature from a low of 2.0c around dawn to 6.2c at 08:50GMT the temperature levelled out at around 6.3c and fell slightly to 6.1c at 10:00GMT, there after the temperature began to rise slowly under partly cloudy skies. Apart from feeling rather chilly and turning dusk like through the middle of the eclipse, no other changes were noted, the wind was very light throughout.

 

Readings at 09:00 GMT:

 

Maximum temperature to 18:00 GMT yesterday: 7.9°C

Minimum temperature overnight 1.5°C

24-hour maximum 7.9°C

24-hour minimum: 1.5°C

Yesterday.

 

Mostly cloudy overnight, though a few clear spells for a couple of hours after midnight allowed for a ground frost to develop. Dawning overcast, mist. Little change so far this morning. Mostly cloudy, a few bright spells, feeling cool.

At eclipse time, two layers of cloud, mainly Sc had spread in. In spite of this the eclipse was partly visible at times as the moon moved across, from the left hand corner across to the right before the sun came out fully again. It did go quite dark although not as pronounced as the 1999 eclipse.

Even so the temperature halt is quite evident around 0930 on my weather trace

A nice spring day...after the eclipse of course.  Thick cloud cleared quickly around 11.30am to give us a mild afternoon with unbroken sunshine.  Too cloudy to see any of the eclipse here.  Maximum 13.2, minimum 4.8.  Wind light NE.
