Where is winter?
OK, today we pass a kind of milestone: sunset 30 minutes later than at its darkest. Very nice. The weather is a mix of sunshine and showers, with some fantastic winter skies and lovely colours.
But where is winter? Temperatures are persistently very mild, with many nighttime minima around 10 degrees (a more reasonable nighttime figure for June thanJanuary)! Just the one night so far with a hint of a frost, and that was back in December.
