All change again!

After the almost no visibility of yesterday - and about 10cm or so of fresh but wet/heavy snow - today starts off with clear blue skies and hardly a cloud to be seen. Bright and sunny it is. Having said so, it was quite a cold start to the day but likely will warm up. Not as much as it is due to warm up tomorrow, in what looks likely to be a very warm day. But by Saturday colder temps are back with us along with snowfall. We might just see a bit of rain lower down especially before it turns into snow on Saturday.

Utopia - 260cm
Chuo - 220cm
Paradise - 240cm
