It's not going to be a particularly nice day today by the looks of things.

Rain forecast for the day and winds getting stronger as the day progresses as well and while the wind has not affected lifts at the start of the day it is likely that they will later on.

Wet and windy - my two fave things! (Not, actually).

Hopefully by tomorrow the rain will have eased off and things will start to be calmer as well.

Might there even be a bit of snow to report tomorrow morning on the upper slopes? We shall see.
