We did get rain yesterday unfortunately after a rather warm day and night.

This morning it is just cloudy, the rain has for the most part eased off at the moment, but still +5 degrees in the village and some fairly strong winds. The top part of the mountain is currently covered in cloud and apparently it is 0 degrees up there will some cold rain still falling.

Hopefully the rain clouds should clear up a bit later on. It's difficult to predict what we will get weather wise over the weekend but perhaps cloudy with sunny spells - the best conditions on Sunday.
