The sun is out once again this morning and it was a cold start to the day but it's warming up quickly.

Quite what will happen tomorrow seems borderline still with some forecasts still mentioning rain/sleet, but it seems to be less than was on the forecast this time yesterday - perhaps we can avoid it?

Really interesting is what is on the forecast for Tuesday onwards... decent snowfall? Yes, it's looking promising!

For the moment though, time to get out and enjoy a taste of early spring.
