The sun shines on the righteous and the unrighteous

A lovely sunny morning down here in Devon after a sharp overnight frost, the 18-06 minimum at Exeter Airport was -3.4°C. But I notice that the edge of the SC sheet has just taken Yeovilton out, and a few bits of cloud have appeared on the eastern horizon as I type, so the sunshine might not last the morning out. The SC sheet itself looks very uniform across the country, with a base of 3,000 feet and tops of around 5,000 feet if the Herstmonceux midnight ascent is anything to go by.
