Current weather conditions:
Clear (apart from just a few small clouds)
Temperature (mountain top):
Thankfully conditions improved during the morning yesterday. Visibility got better, the rain stopped and we even got some blue skies and sun at times though there was still a lot of cloud hanging on.
This morning the sun is out and it's mostly clear blue skies... just a few small white clouds here and there. A lovely spring morning like we were hoping for.
Currently the forecast is for similar weather conditions tomorrow, rain perhaps moving in later on and to continue for a wet Monday.
