It was a lovely fine and warm day yesterday and today is probably going to be more of the same.

More hazy I would say early on this morning, but sun is forecast with the temperature again expected to rise to just over 10C this afternoon.

So... tomorrow. What's going to happen?

Latest forecasts still point to a cool down with colder conditions, and also some snowfall. It seems down at town level at least, it might well be giri-giri (borderline) rain or sleet at times - so we are just going to have to hope that it gets as cold as possible and we'll see the snow. Snow possible through until Wednesday though so we can be hopeful. Difficult to read though, so we'll just have to sit back and see what we are given.

Before we get any possible fresh, it's full on spring conditions out there of course with the usual thing where better snow conditions the higher you go.

Still lots of fun to be had.

And lots of snow still. With the warmer conditions it is melting of course, but there is still between 1.5m - 2m of snow round the side of our building!
