I'd prefer to be reporting huge amounts of snowfall, but still can't help be happy to report clear skies and the fantastic mountain scenery on a morning like this.

Yes, those rain clouds have cleared and it is a lovely morning here. It was a chilly start with temperatures likely to rise up to about 8 degrees here in the village later on in the day.

More sun is forecast tomorrow and it's going to remain mild into early next week.

The snow on the upper slopes of the mountains is looking thin on the ground now unfortunately, but things can - and often do - change quickly once things start happening.

Tuesday looks like it might be promising for snowfall though - could that be the start of things?

As always, keep your eye on that forecast.

I'll post the next report on Monday, unless there's anything particularly exciting to report.
