A bit more snow to report since yesterday morning and light snow falling early morning.

It's remaining cold too which is good for the snow conditions so things are relatively pretty decent at the moment for the start of the weekend. (Obviously I'd prefer 40cm of deep fresh...!)

There's some blue sky to be seen here and there at the moment so perhaps it's going to clear up during the day. Or will there be more snow to come? Still some there on the forecast for today and especially tomorrow night as well, so we may not have seen the last of it for the moment.

As we get into next week especially around Wednesday we can expect some warmer conditions to arrive.
