A cold, clear night was followed by light snow this morning which fell down in the town as well.

It's a little wetter than we're used to but the target is still tomorrow night when it looks like we have a decent amount coming. More snow on Wednesday night and then again on Saturday the 4th. Right now it's overcast and feels a little humid with temps hovering just above freezing.

Looks set to get much colder from tomorrow onward which is most welcome!
