Goodbye GMT, hello BST

Tomorrow morning (28 March) at 1 a.m. the UK will move one hour forward from 'Greenwich Mean Time' to 'British Summer Time', heralding lighter evenings and the prospect of summer just a few months away. It will still be light in the morning for most people and instead of sunset being at around 6.45 p.m. as it is at present, it will become 7.45 p.m. By the time we reach midsummer, almost perfect daylight will remain until around 10.45 p.m. at this latitude and longitude (N57:35:18 W3:52:27 ), and it will not really become properly dark all night. We will return to GMT for the winter at 2 a.m. on Sunday 31 October - more information about time changes in the UK is available here.

I'm going to take a break from this blog for the rest of the weekend - have a good one!
