    Default Weather conditions on 5/5/1943 Cambridgeshire?

    Can any one help?
    I am trying to establish what the weather conditions were on 5/5/1943 in Huntingdonshire(RAF Graveley)

    It may help explain the crash of Halifax DT489.

    My thanks and seasons greetings.

    Thank you Ross,
    I'm looking at Halifax DT489 which 'collided with tree' ' hit high ground' depending on which data you look at. Poor visibility due to rain, on a crew possibly on their first mission, could well have contributed to the crash.
