After the clearer conditions of yesterday it's all change again here today. Over the village it's just cloudy but the upper slopes are completely covered in cloud and taking a look at the webcams from up there it looks like visibility is extremely poor up there. Need to be careful!

It is about 9C at the moment and just cloudy but rain is expected fairly soon which might continue tomorrow. We might get stronger winds as well this afternoon.

Tuesday and Wednesday should see a return of the sun and those warm temperatures I have mentioned.
