It was cloudy for most of the day yesterday and a cloudy morning this morning. There has been just a light dusting down in the village but perhaps not quite hitting that 1cm mark!

Resorts around the valley though are reporting 5-10cm of fresh snow on upper slopes this morning, so a bit of a fresh top up on the slopes that are open.

So it's cloudy this morning but some breaks in the cloud and the forecast does tell us to expect a bit of sun later on. In fact, the sun is just about peeking through from behind the clouds as I write this and casting some shadows. Hold on... no, gone back behind the clouds again.

Tomorrow won't be as chilly as it is today, but seems like we should expect sun from early on.

The forecast still shows some good potential in the coming week, as fickle as they are it's probably best to take it one day at a time and I'll of course keep you updated every day with the latest.
