Clear, cold morning followed by light snow this afternoon which is getting heavier.

Down in the village its quite wet and all eyes are on the forecast calling rain tomorrow morning. Fingers crossed it doesn't eventuate. The freezing level is expected to be well over 2000m... very bad when combined with precipitation.

Longer term we are expecting snow tomorrow night and the next day but it doesn't look like we can expect much.
