Yesterday it clouded over in the afternoon with some thick fog in places as well... and rain. Not the most appealing of conditions, it has to be said! It started getting quite colder as well, though not cold enough for it to be snowing.

High up Kagura are this morning reporting 1-2cm of snow overnight with closer to town Maiko reporting 0cm.

It has been raining down at town level this morning though it's trying to turn into snow - and it is already snowing as you go higher up. Definitely much colder this morning, so it would be great if it keeps cold and we get some new cm of snow during the day today.

It's still there on the forecast so let's see what the day brings.

Light snow at times is on the forecast over the next few days as well. Fingers crossed.

Hope to bring you good news tomorrow morning!
