Not too cold this morning but snow is falling and generally quite poor visibility outside especially higher up on the mountain.

Snowfall expected for the day today and easing off by tomorrow.

It looks like we can expect little snow looking forward over the coming week, and an especially warm looking weekend on the cards.
