Increasing high level cloud
Friday night saw thunderstorms and some milder air move across the region. Unfortunately it washed away a fair bit of the snow up on Youtei. Last night had a few more showers move through that did fall as snow up high so Youtei still has a light dusting of the white stuff.
Went for a walk out along the Western end of the Annupri Range today and we had some great weather with temps up around 7 degrees at 1000m (I've posted some photos).
