The weather today has been mild and not rainy for many, especially in England, though low clouds and fog have settled for most of the day in the south (Figure1). This is due to the high pressure still positioned over the continent which causes light winds and foggy conditions in the lower areas. In Scotland and Northern Ireland instead, more clouds and some showers have occurred during the day, though with still mild conditions due to the Tropical air mass coming from the south.
