A cloudy start to the day and just another thin layer of snow down at base, 1cm.

Earlier I couldn't see the top of the mountain but clouds seem to be clearing and I expect today will end up a clear, blue sky day with the sun out.

Snow and colder temperatures due tomorrow and through the weekend. Perhaps strong winds too. A storm is coming!
