After the warmer climes of yesterday - when we avoided the rain that lots of areas got, it was snowing here in Kumanoyu where I was for the day - it's much colder this morning. It might have snowed yesterday and overnight but not much in terms of cm.

Light snow still falling and a light wind (stronger in some exposed areas I suspect), but generally we're expecting cloudy conditions with just sometimes snow showers today, and a bit of sun tomorrow. Importantly it should be keeping cold this time and then dip further once we get into the weekend which at the moment is forecast to be generally snowy conditions again.

Generally quite hard conditions out there yesterday, so a decent fresh layer of soft is what we would like.
