Blue bird here yesterday and today and its the first sun we've seen in weeks so a welcome change, but things really heated up yesterday afternoon with temps approaching double digits up at 1300m.

Looks like the same weather this morning though the forecast is for precipitation to arrive imminently. No sign of it at present.

Going out further tonight it looks like we get some decent snow and hopefully not too much. Saturday night is looking like big snow so if that eventuates, Sunday is likely to be Hodaigi or Okutone.
