We ended up with another fine day yesterday - not quite as blue, with the skies ending up a more silvery bright later in the afternoon - but the sun out for most of the day.

Resorts around town all looked suitably busy.

This morning it's an overcast start but we are once again expecting the skies to clear up to some degree and welcome sunshine.

It didn't get that cold overnight - only just managing to dip into minus numbers - and the forecast tells us to expect a warm day today... the warmest of the year so far if the forecast of a high of around +8 degrees is correct.

Snow should be back tomorrnw night, with rain beforehand at lower elevations, and a return to colder temperatures come Wednesday.
