A new record low temperature
The temperatures here by the coast are nothing as extreme as those experienced inland. The sea has a moderating effect keeping us cooler in the summer months and much warmer in the winter. So, the temperatures we’re getting at the coast seem almost tropical compared to those recorded inland here in Wales.
However, the Borth and Ynyslas weather station that I run has just recorded a new record low temperature this morning of -6.5ºC. The previous coldest day was January 9th 2009 with a low temperature of -6.2ºC. It may drop lower yet before the sun comes up properly, so I may have to update this later today. But for now, it’s a new record of -6.5ºC here in Ynyslas since records began in December 2005.
