After a spell of colder conditions, yesterday saw a change with things warming up and a real feel of spring with clear and sunny skies and warmer temperatures.

There's quite a bit of cloud around this morning, but sun is what the forecasts say - for tomorrow as well. It will be warm today, but warmer still tomorrow with some forecasts showing a high of around 25C being possible! That sounds more like summer than spring to me!

Just over two weeks left of lift operations. Let's make the most of it while we can.
