A bit clearer this morning. The sun is trying to make an appearence and visibility is generally good - can see the top of the mountain from base. Forecast is for clear conditions today so maybe the clouds are on the way out.

Just 1cm or so of snow since yesterday and this morning there is no wind and it's about -3 degrees in the village.

Clouds due back though soon with more snow due later on tomorrow. So if that pans out it'll be fresh snow conditions for the weekend.
