    A clear and exceptionally cold start. The min temp of -3.4C was the lowest on record here going back to 1980, beating the previous -3.1C set in April 1990. Even more interesting is that it comes just 12 days after beating the highest March maximum record!

    Currently clear, sunny and frosty with a temp of -2.4C.

    Its probably the coldest in your neck of the woods since 1990 John. Finningley RAF managed -5.4C that year. 1996 had a few cold nights so its possible it was colder than -3.5C then but either way its the coldest night in at least 25 years.

    I suspect you are probably correct, April 1990 was a month before I arrived here, Finningley closed late summer 1995 and I only started keeping a record of the weather here in January 1997, so that date slips between the two!
