Yesterday didn't end up being the bluebird that it looked like it might early in the morning - there was lots of cloud around for most of the day in the end with a few sunny spells at times and in places through the valley.

Overnight there has been a bit of snow up at higher elevations overnight and a dusting down below and it's snowing now as I write this report... slightly heavier variety at the moment from what I can see here near the base of Goryu.

This morning it's noticeably not as cold as it has been early mornings and currently just under freezing. As it gets slightly warmer later on we are expecting sleet and very possibly rain down here at village and lower levels, though it should remain snowing higher up on the mountains.

Snowfall due to continue through tonight and into tomorrow morning and should clear up by the afternoon.

Looking ahead to the weekend, for now on the forecast it's a good chance of sunny and fine weather conditions.

Would be good if we could get in a good refresh before then, as is always the case.

See you tomorrow.
