Coldest night so far this autumn
The -7.1°C from Altnaharra last night was the coldest night of autumn 2019 so far. This is of course from the SYNOP list which does not include the observations from climate stations the Met Office refuse to publish. The temperature at Altnaharra probably will have dipped even lower after 06 UTC, but again the NCM climate data which includes the 21-09 extremes is also jealously guarded by the powers that be down in Exeter and not published.
Once again Altnaharra and Aboyne top the SYNOP cold spot top twenty as they invariably do in most years.
