Today shouldn't be quite as warm as it way yesterday; we are starting the day at around +8C and it should be getting colder as the day moves on.

More rain is expected, particularly tomorrow, but come Friday all being well we will be getting snowed on - and hopefully that will continue through the weekend.

Everyone is itching to get going for the season now. Patience levels going down. Let's see how the coming weekend changes things!
