The night was clear, the morning saw blue skies but dark clouds have rolled in from the North and it's been snowing up top at Tenjin for a few hours, with a rainier variety of sleet at the base.

Just did a temp check and it's turned to snow and looks like this could be an aggressive storm.

The winds are moderate to strong from the North with the odd howl to be heard as it rips down the valley. Temps are set to drop this afternoon and snow and colder temps are forecast for the next 5 days at the base of the mountain with a lot more up top...

Could be worth watching this space...
