It's warming up already this morning after a mild overnight with the sun out and once again blue skies above us.

A lovely spring day with snow conditions as you might expect. Still, there sure is lots of it around!

Warmth will probably continue through Thursday which should see rain and then temperatures hopefully dropping a bit. I think a return to proper winter like conditions is asking too much though!
