The sound of strong wind could be heard overnight, and stepping outside this morning the fresh snow on the ground showed clearly that there had been a wind effect. There was a decent top up of 4cm at village level but due to the wind it is likely to be a bit firm and inconsistent on the mountain on exposed runs but potentially better where there is shelter. Wind in the village is still moderate at the moment but should reduce in intensity during the day. Sky conditions are clear with mostly blue sky, and the sun is out. Light snow is forecast for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and then Thursday night could provide us with a significant dump.
