Morning from Madarao.

It's a little warmer this morning but light - wet - snow is falling on the mountain and the resort reporting up to 5cm of snow on the slopes - better than lower down in the city where it is raining.

Unfortunately it will probably be getting a bit warmer during the day, and be wet here too. Hopefully we'll minimise that. And the good news is that it should be getting colder tonight and proper snow due.

There were some rather strong winds blowing about earlier on, but things seem to be calming down now a bit now so I expect the resort to be open as planned. Still might be quite windy out on the mountain though.

Here's to the snow tonight!
