The warming began yesterday with what was pretty nice snow getting just a little heavier by mid-morning.

By yesterday afternoon, the fluffy white stuff was starting to look rather tired in the valleys and this morning, we have temps firmly above zero and the snow looks a bit grim. It is lightly precipitating and its rain but the volume is negligible. No need for a jacket etc.

The forecast is for this warm weather to continue throughout the day and some significant rain is expected this evening. The mountain forecast is for this rain to turn to snow sometime tonight and it looks like a reasonable amount at the top of Tenjin (1500m) but a small amount at the base. Last time rain was forecast we dodged the bullet so fingers crossed we do so again.

The longer term forecast is for a small snow tomorrow night, then clear through Monday and then some decent snow for a spell.
