It's light snow this morning in Madarao and light snow forecast for the day... possibly heavy snow overnight tonight.

While it is snowing, visibility is pretty decent still at the moment and a fine conditions to be out on the slopes.

If that forecast is correct we should be on for another decent reset before the weekend and the chance of more snow through the weekend too. The main event looks set to be tonight into tomorrow morning though, so currently not a stormy weekend likely... just very nice conditions to enjoy.
