What a beautiful day it was yesterday.

Fantastic.

It was very mild though, and the local news was reporting temperatures that are normal for mid-March. There was definitely some snow being melted.

Decent snowfall followed by fine weather but warming up perhaps a bit too much - that cycle does seem to be happening more than a few times this season.

Anyway, today started off with the sun out and some light blue skies to be seen as well, but it has clouded over in the last hour or so over the town. It is mild again and a high of around 6C is expected later on. So there is a very good chance that we'll get the rain that the forecast is warning us about, perhaps from early afternoon. Fingers crossed it is light and turns into snow as things get colder tonight. Doesn't look like it's going to get that much colder though. Come on nature, help us out!

From tomorrow the forecast is looking quite promising once again with regular snow expected in the coming week and hopefully moderate-heavy at times.

Probably best to get any skiing or snowboarding in early today before conditions change.
