Some light snow showers moved through the region during the afternoon yesterday but last night cleared and with no wind the temps plummeted. This morning in the valley it was down to around -16 and currently high cloud is increasing from the west as a region of low pressure approaches. Snow is expected to develop later today and continue through the night into tomorrow.
Snow-forecast has changed it's forecast for Friday back to bucket loads of rain for region but JMA is still forecasting wet snow. As I said yesterday the exact path of the low pressure system is very difficult to accurately predict and the slightest variation can make all the difference between lots of rain or lots of snow. Hopefully it'll mostly be snow but at this stage some rain is very probable.
Today all lifts and gates will open but people should not be traversing directly under cornices. The cornices grew dramatically during the storm over the weekend and remain unstable.
