After a nice start to the day temperatures have dropped and it has become much more cloudy. It is even starting to try to snow this evening and we can maybe expect a very thin new layer of snow tomorrow morning.

The outlook for tomorrow is cloud/sunny spells/chance of light snow - wonder how that will turn out! - before clearer, sunny conditions on Friday when things should warm up into positive numbers once again.
