The cold weather just won't go away at the moment!

This morning a little earlier it was 0 degrees in the village with a sprinkling of snow, cloudy and foggy onditions so fairly poor visibility on the mountain. Expect it to be colder up there so winter wear is still needed.

These conditions look likely to clear up as the day progresses though and by tomorrow it is likely to be clear and sunny with considerably warmer temperatures.
