The snow that was falling yesterday when I posted the report didn't end up giving us any new cm.

After that warmish weekend we are back to somewhat colder temperatures this morning - though it's still relatively mild.

The sun is out as well with only thin clouds in places, so it will get warmer before it chills down again. The good news is that we will probably get snowed on before the end of the day or overnight and so I am hopeful of being able to report new snow tomorrow morning. Looks good to get much colder and for us to get a few days of snow clouds in the region, though probably not the kind that will bring us those deep conditions we crave. Not just yet perhaps...
