It doesn't feel like mid-winter of course, but it's definitely a change this morning.

We were greeted with some thick fog and really poor visibility on the mountain earlier on and while that has improved a bit it's still much more of a grey day than we have been having of late - even reports of some light snowfall earlier on, though right now it is just cloudy.

The latest forecast seems to be cloud for tomorrow followed by sunny conditions into the weekend and we will also still likely see those temperatures rising.
