The word rain should be banned during winter, but alas the region got that yesterday. It didn't last long though happily and this morning it is back to being much colder and there's a few cm of fresh snow again this morning... enough to make the trees look slightly frosted.

Generally cloudy skies this morning with snow likely later on and overnight tonight. In fact, the forecast is looking quite promising once again with regular snowfall lined up in the coming days.

Yes, back to winter conditions sounds good to me.

It will be interesting to see how snow conditions are this morning but if we get the snow tonight tomorrow will surely be the better of the weekend days.

Have a good one.
