It was rain for most of the day yesterday. Not nice.

Enough of that, let's try to wipe it from our memories. And that will be quite easy this morning because anyone getting higher up on the mountains today will be treated to a truly spectacular view of a thick sea of clouds covering the valley - with blue skies above it.

Truly stunning scenery. Get it while it lasts!

For those staying down in the village it's cloudy and foggy in places and not much to be seen at all. You need to get high up.

The cloud will probably disperse this morning leaving us with sunny conditions lower down as well and temperatures approaching double digits at base. More of that is expected tomorrow too after a clearer night tonight.

Oh yes, and snow is still expected on Monday and Tuesday. Just how much a return to winter like conditions it will be remains to be seen. Fingers crossed everyone.
