High pressure lasted into Sunday which was all about the skies. Aeolus, god of the winds, had been at work and the rhythms and patterns of cloud were mesmerising. By mid-day the drama was all over and a gloom prevailed.
The wind is invisible to mere mortals but Aeolus, the space satellite, will use lasers to measure light at different altitudes- predicting the winds. Over Friday night winds from the south-west met high pressure and snow fell on the Langdales. By Sunday morning transient patterns of cloud swept the skies.
