Took an evening out from the mountains and returned around noon yesterday to light, sporadic rain.

Overnight the mountains have seen heavier rain and the river is running through the valley this morning with more light rain and light to moderate winds from the North.

It was 2.5C above zero at 1300m which means our freezing level is somewhere above 1600m.

Grim stuff but temps are forecast to drop and snow to fall this afternoon before clear cool weather over the weekend.

This weekend is a gamble on conditions but best hunt out some Southerly aspects which should soften up in the sun.
