Although it was snowing yesterday on the mountains there's no new snowfall to report this morning (apart from a dusting being reported by a few resorts) - surely there was a few cm falling up there? - but the beautiful weather this morning will make up for that.

It's a very cold morning with clear blue skies, just a few small lonely fluffs of white cloud here and there.

Stunning.

Looks like it should stay clear and sunny for the day, and maybe we'll have some more sun tomorrow but back to snowfall around Friday - and heavy snowfall still due on Saturday.

For now though, it's a beautiful morning to enjoy.
