Report was too early yesterday morning with conditions quickly changing and by 9am lots of blue sky above the region. It turned into a lovely morning, though by lunchtime there was more grey cloud developing and hiding the sun... by late afternoon it was totally overcase once again.

No snowfall overnight and currently -2 degrees. A mix of cloud, overcast with a bit of clear sky as well with the forecast teasing us with the prospect of more sun during the day today. So perhaps it will change like it did yesterday.

As with many regions it would seem that the next decent snowfall will be with us from Sunday. Perhaps some snow tomorrow as well.
