Good morning and it's back to a Monday morning.

We got rain again from around lunchtime yesterday. :(

It didn't warm up too much during the day keeping fairly chilly out.

As for this morning - I almost don't want to write it, but... it is raining. Not much just now. We might see a break in it during the morning but it's forecast pretty much for the day and overnight too.

There can't be much left in that rain tank! The good news is that once we get into tomorrow the forecast for the rest of the week is generally looking better with more sun (and less of the wet stuff).

It kept mild overnight and it's quite a warm morning, already 12 degrees here in the village as of 9am.

We have done a bit of re-arranging of the resort-specific information below - and will continue to do what we can to keep that up to date each day!

Please do check it daily for updated info on each of the resorts.
