After another very fine day yesterday weather-wise, we have some fresh snow this morning from overnight. The snowfall will probably be easing off this morning and even now from the village we can see some blue sky so maybe it will clear up nicely during the daytime.

Not so cold overnight last night and at 9am this morning it is around -1C.

So yes a bit of fresh snowfall this morning. Different resorts reporting varying amounts of snow this morning and I have noted them all down as far as I can find below. Ranging from a mistaken 0cm (I think) to up to 20cm at Cortina, fresh will vary where you choose this morning I think.

Would like to report deeper numbers, so when can we expect them? Looking like it might be Sunday when decent snowfall starts and it's expected to be snowing well into the week next week. Some good numbers probable/likely/hopefully!

In the meantime before that, tomorrow is looking set to fine, clear and sunny with temperatures venturing into low positive numbers in the afternoon.
