The first ground frost of Autumn was evident this morning. Frost could be seen on cars and on the grass when I went out about 8am. The air temperature was still well above freezing though, bottoming out around 3.5 degC. This shows how the temperature at ground level can be much lower on clear nights, when the dew point is depressed in slightly drier air.

The day then turned out to be superbly sunny and quite mild. A classic Autumn day!

 

Why You Need a Home Weather Station
Use a home weather station to monitor your environment, both inside and outside your home, or install one in your greenhouse to help you keep an eye on the conditions in the garden. Home weather stations can bring you all sorts of data on the prevailing conditions: temperature, humidity, time, moon phase, wind speed, rainfall as well as air purity and co2 details.
