The unsettled weather patterns are continuing. After a stunning sunny day yesterday, the warm southerly winds moved in overnight raising the temperature and bringing blustery and wet weather.

The base temperature is up to +6°C, the peak is still bellow freezing (-2°C) but that is not expected to last. At upper elevations the wind is reaching 97km/h, forcing the Gondola, Asari #2 and Nagamine #2 onto wind hold. In better news, the light rainfall this morning has stopped.

The weather is expected to stay this way for most of the day, before things calm down overnight. There is more sunshine and cool temperatures forecast tomorrow, folowed by more snowfall during the week.
