Another cloudy start to thew day here and -1C currently.

This warmer spell is giving us some spring-like conditions out there, giving your legs a real work out. Some speeding going on and I saw a few crashes yesterday that needed patrol help... hitting the brakes a bit more difficult than in fresh conditions!

Snow still forecast for later tomorrow and Friday.
