As expected, yesterday was warm. Up to 10C warm, felt warmer than that almost. Harder conditions on the slopes early on but the warmth soon softened things up, especially on the lower areas of resorts. The sun stayed out for most of the day until late afternoon by which time it had became more overcast and cloudy as the day went on.

I'd expect more of the same today (and tomorrow as well) - it might even get a bit warmer still. It's already well above zero and a high of around 11C is expected this afternoon. Thankfully not much of a wind and so all resorts are open as planned this morning.

All very spring like though. As always at this time of the year we are wondering if and when we might see a return to winter-like conditions, and need to remember that in past seasons March has served us up some very nice surprises. Last year being a good example.

So it's bright and sunny early this morning but much more overcast than it was yesterday. There's a chance of rain later on today and tomorrow, hopefully snow at higher elevations.
