Good morning from a rainy Appi,

Well it’s raining here this morning with dreary grey skies. Heavy rain, I'm afraid. That’s the bad news. The good news is that it’s going to change to snow later in the day…and a lot of it. We’re expecting around 50+ cm the next two days to put a smile on all those gloomy faces. Temperatures will fall rapidly this afternoon and into tomorrow.

It’ll be windy out there today for those braving the rain but should abate somewhat the next few days to a light westerly. Obviously they’ll be a nice ice layer forming tonight but if we get the snow that is forecast it shouldn’t make that much of a difference. The rest of the week looks promising too with snowfall predicted through till Friday and temperatures where they should be around -10.

Don your rain coat and canoe this morning if you’re heading up the hill.
