All change with the weather today as the blue skies have gone and things are altogether more grey and cloudy. Actually things did start off fairly bright but hazy, but clouds have moved in over the last hour or so. Unfortunately, it has also started raining here in the village. It's fairly warm too, so perhaps too much to expect snow even higher up, but it might just happen - but I wouldn't expect too much from it though. The best we can hope for really is for things to clear up later this afternoon leaving us with more sunny conditions tomorrow.

Monday night into Tuesday? It's still looking really interesting. Heavy snow up top, heavy rain in the village? Maybe. Let's see how that develops as we get closer to it.
