S Herts Trend of colder night temps is continuing. +8.5 last night and atm it is chilly out with sun trying to push clouds away unsuccessfully. Chilly gusts of wind, so gloves and hood on again for this morning's dog walk.
It is not the air temperature that affects the body but the humidity and closeness. We had 22 on a Tuesday, but was warned it would feel quite oppressive due to the humidity. It did, every step felt like a great effort. 2 days later we had 26, but was a clear/clean fresh dry air, and I walked with a spring in my step effortlessly. They said it wouldn't feel as hot as the 22 we had 2 days earlier, and we did not have a chilly breeze either.
The 22 was a cloudy day and the 26 was a brilliant blue sky with dry/ fresh air.
Cos I'm running the London Marathon and it would be sod's law that after the coldest marathon training season ever, we get a warm day for the race. I've been told by someone that its predicted to be 22 degrees. Please tell me they're wrong...otherwise I am screwed.
