Mainly rain yesterday, with tops of 4C and fairly calm skies. We’ve lost a bit of snow with the rain, but hopefully our luck with the weather gods changes soon.

Lost snow or not, we also gained a little. This morning we’re recording 3cm of fresh stuff, though it fell on some fairly wet frozen ground yesterday, so don’t expect anything too fluffy. Should start out a little heavy, but with the temps expected to stay well below zero it should stay put.

Tops of -8C today with some moderate winds and some afternoon snow showers, that should continue into the evening, though we’re not expecting much to report on.

As for the next few days, I wish I could say the weather’s changing, but its stubbornly continuing to tell me that from Thursday evening into Saturday morning we’re going to get over 140mm of rain. I’ll keep you updating, and I ask you to pray to whoever/whatever you believe in, for a miracle. Because that’d be neat.

Wednesday: clear and sunny, calm skies & tops of -1C
Thursday: cloudy with late heavy rain, light winds & tops of 3C
Friday: heavy rain, calm skies & tops of 4C
