Morning.

A fairly chilly very early morning but it is quickly warming up as the sun gets to work.

Lots of the region is going to get rain tomorrow. Very possibly including us.

Might we be lucky? Obviously hope so, but it will be mild even up here so hoping for snow might just be a bit too much. Let's just hope it doesn't warm up too much - and probably expect rain.
