After that good start to the day yesterday, we were into snowfall and windy weather conditions again by the afternoon. Not huge amounts of snow this time though.

And this morning... we're back to clear skies and sunshine. There's more of this due over the next run of days too, probably until Sunday. It's really cold this morning but we can expect somewhat warmer conditions late week and over the weekend.

The cold will be back for Monday though and that is when the next decent snowfall is expected.

No fresh snowfall expected before the weekend but I do expect more areas to open at the weekend. More people will be here for Christmas and in the run up to New Year, so as much as possible will be open.
