Apart from that chilling wind, it was a lot milder last night than it has been. If you look at the above graph you can see that yesterday morning it was bitterly cold. By early afternoon the air had warmed up with the sun and only dropped to about 7 degrees by midnight.
By the weekend, the cloud cover that is keeping it mild at night, will have cleared paving the way for cold nights to return.
I dread to think what this month’s gas bill will be like – hopefully with the drop in oil prices (we use propane) it will not be horrendous.
PS That £200 winter fuel allowance will come in handy – shame we won’t get it after next year.
