It has been snowing. And we have a decent 12cm of fresh snowfall since yesterday as well.

Snow was coming down this morning - again a bit on the wet side - but hopefully we might get some more before the end of today and overnight. There's also a chance of some blue sky around today.

There doesn't seem to be a whole lot lined up in the forecast for after that over the next 6 days or so, so the more we get now the better.
