Well there were plenty of people out yesterday enjoying the copious quantities of new snow that varied from about 50cm over 2 days in the village to over a metre on the resort! It was heavy in places but with the right aspect factored in there was some very good stuff up there. Temperatures were very warm yesterday with lots of melt evident by water starting to stream down roads and the tar seal just breaking through in places.

Today the warmth continues with temperature right now already +2c and heading up to +7c. The next not so great news is that it is raining. It was coming down moderately an hour ago but has eased back to light rain, and is forecast to continue through until about midday. Expect snow conditions on mountain to be heavy and a bit wet. Cloud is low at the moment so there is plenty of flat light.

The rest of the week should be colder with some light snow, but on Thursday and Friday heavy rain its on the forecast.
