Lots more snow during the day yesterday along with wind and some pretty hairy conditions at times.

This morning the snow is still falling and it is still windy, but perhaps less so than yesterday and the forecasts do tell us to expect conditions to calm down somewhat during the day today.

For those coming for the weekend - there might even be some sunshine. Which should make for a great few days with all of this fresh snow to enjoy.

Don't worry though; it's set to remain cold and there's more snow lined up on the forecast from Monday.

Nice!
