Cold and cloudy/foggy conditions yesterday, and great to see some fresh snow up there too.

No more new snow to report but it is remaining quite cold again this morning.

Cloudy from down here in the village but looking from higher up on the mountains there's a fine looking thick sea of clouds again this morning. It looks beautiful.

Mixed forecasts for tomorrow - take your pick from cloud, sun and rain. Best to just wait and I'll let you know what is actually happening in my next report, hopefully with more of a clear idea of how the weekend will play out...
