Summary of last 24 hours to 6 pm Thursday 27th November 2014

A reasonably bright if sunless start to the day with cloud base nudging 800 metres (2600 feet) but by late morning the base was already on the way down, the cloud thickening as well. The afternoon has therefore been dull and dreary with humidity once again in the 90% plus range though it has been the odd degree warmer than yesterday at 6 to 70C, up from around 00C before dawn. No significant change is forecast for tomorrow though cloud base may rise to near 900 metres (3000 feet) in the north Lakes with occasional drizzle over the Pennines. The wind will be somewhat brisker over the fells, typically a strong south or south-easterly, gusting to near gale force (35 to 40 mph) and it will be slightly warmer again.
