It's 6°C in Hertfordshire with a northwesterly breeze bringing air from the chilly (at this time of the year) North Sea.
On a positive note, it's dry and it looks as if it will stay that way for the next couple of days at least.
So it'll be leggings for this morning's bike ride!

Colin 🙂🙂🙂

Update: the bike ride was most enjoyable, though pushing into the wind was slightly less so.
The sun's breaking the cloud up and the temperature may well soar to 9°C (though feels warmer out of the breeze and in the sunshine) so I'm planning an early lunch in the garden.
It seems so much more like a Sunday than a Friday today.

Colin 🙂🙂🙂

Still dark but no rain here in west Wales. Weather is set fair again and by the afternoon it gets quite warm. We haven't lit the log burner for 3 days now!

Yesterday we enjoyed some cooler sunshine but still very pleasant if you could get out of the chilly breeze, this morning we avoided a frost but we have grey skies and are only nudging 2 degrees. Don't think I'll bother taking the fleece protection off the tender plants.

It's a chilly 6°C in Herts right now with dryness under the uniformly grey sky.
On a positive note the temperature is expected to climb to 7°C later.
Not inspiring.
Not one tiny, weeny bit inspiring.

Update: I enjoyed the bike ride this morning, though it was chilly. Those of you who get out for exercise in cold weather will be aware that the body doesn't release warm blood to the extremities until the brain is confident that the body's core temperature is likely to stay in the green zone. This morning with the wind chill of a 7°C head wind it was about 12km (30 mins) until the fingers were toasty.
Now the sun is doing it's best to break through the light grey cloud. Here's hoping.

It was a lovely day yesterday here in west Wales. It's still a bit murky out there but threatens to be another nice one too.

Edited to add: the sun is up now and the sky is cloudless. Another frost overnight...not great news for the plants I potted up last week! fingers crossed for them.

Yesterday the weather improved after a grey start, overnight frost and cloudless now, temperature has crept up to 3 degrees with a forecast max of 10 degrees. Off to lay out the Easter egg trail for the grandkids visit ...

There's plenty of blue above Herts this morning with less air movement than yesterday.
A bike ride this morning and a socially distanced walk this afternoon is the plan for today.
Happy Easter everyone.

Glorious.
Breakfast on the Upper Terrace.
Calm, Sun just rising above the carob tree. Strong whafts of Orange, Lavender, Jasmine blossom.
No big Easter parades, again.
We're going for a walk, before the sun gets too hot.
We'll pass through the village, to see if they've laid the carpet of flowers and herbs, around the church .
Tomorrow, we can go up into the hills for another walk... And visit that bar with the views of the coastline.. AND SIT OUTSIDE, with a coffee.. they open tomorrow..
Hoping the new smugfilter arrives tomorrow.

Update: There were plenty of paragliders circling overhead as I cycled up Dunstable Downs this morning:

......all appropriately socially distanced, of course.
And on the way home I came across the first bluebells in full bloom:
