After that beautiful day yesterday, this morning the clouds are back.

It's not as cold as usual once again - though I'm sure people visiting may well still call it 'cold'! - and it should be getting colder later on today and tomorrow.

Did I mention the snow that is due as well? Yes, we have snow lined up pretty much every day in the coming week so we are should be on for regular resets. Looks for the heaviest snow around tomorrow night and then Thursday into Friday.

Lower down in the valleys it will probably be raining sometime later this afternoon but we'll probably/hopefully go straight into snow up here. May start off as wetter than usual snow though should be better once things get colder tomorrow.

I'll let you know how it goes tomorrow morning.
