Figure 1

It’s not very often that you’ll see Liscombe in Somerset (and not in Devon as I had always thought) as the warmest place in the British Isles, but it happened today with a temperature of 15.0°C at 15 UTC (fig 1), in fact it was a southwest one two with Exeter Airport second in the table (fig 2), but I bet you won’t hear about that on the BBC weather.

Figure 2

You can’t even call Liscombe a village in all honesty, there is a Liscombe Farm, but the AWS is a little way to the east up what looks a very lonely lane on Exmoor at a height of 348 M (fig 3), so it might be getting a little help from the northwesterly wind.
