There wasn't really much going on weather wise yesterday with it rain, sleet and a bit of snow at different times. Not much of any of those though.

Just a dusting of snow at town level this morning, while Kagura report 10cm of fresh snow. Right now snow is falling but at the same time I can see the sun shining through in places, a real mix of conditions. It kind of feels a bit half-hearted right now.

There is a heavy snow warning out for this area though right now so perhaps it will come on and bring us the snow from now.

Looking ahead after the snow due today, clearer conditions expected tomorrow possibly with snow showers from time to time - snow back to the area by mid-week.

Seems odd to be saying this so soon after so much snow fell from the skies last week but... fresh snow please!
