I notice that Weybourne was 4C around noon, so I checked the SST, and it's about 5C off the coast of East Anglia, https://www.channelcoast.org/realtimedata/
despite the recent warmer weather & sunshine. In fact much of the North Sea is a fair bit colder than normal.
This contrasts with much of the near Atlantic.
The SST is currently >10C at Sevenstones and around Scilly, and >9C around Cornwall & south Devon, around 1C above normal for the end of February.
Interesting because Julian, in another thread (on USW I think) commented on the warmth over recent years being concentrated in the SE. His possible explanation being an upper trough over the Atlantic & a dominant SW airstream. I wonder if this was linked to the North Atlantic 'cool pool' which has been such a feature for a long time?
Anyway, that 'cool pool' is less evident now, and combined with a cold North Sea will things change. Whatever happens, North Sea coast residents will be wishing for a lack of easterlies in Spring!
Having a breeze off the sea with an SST of 10C, is very different if the SSTs 5C!
Another beautiful day today, and the sand's coming back - at last.
