Good morning.

After the clearer skies of the daytime yesterday, there's lots of cloud around this morning.

And yes, it's relatively warm - for us that means that it's just under zero at the moment and hopefully it won't rise too much into + numbers later. Rain is forecast for lower regions later in the day - can we escape that with some snow...? I'll let you know tomorrow.
