We're starting the day again with lots of grey cloud above the region.

Yesterday the clouds did move on and we were left with a lovely afternoon. Not brilliant sharp blue, more like a light blue-silvery feel to the skies.

And actually more people on the slopes than I was expecting - children in this area are not yet back to school, so there seemed to be quite a few young skiers and boarders out.

It felt rather mild overnight and it's going to get very mild today. Up to 8 degrees say some local forecasts. Even Kagura say temperatures will range from 2-4C during today.

And unfortunately, we're destined to get rained on as well from maybe as early as mid to late morning. Things should get colder by evening by which time any rain might have turned into snow. It's looking good for at least a few days of snowfall from tomorrow so we should be getting that refresh pretty quick.

Hopefully I'll be able to report some new cm in my report tomorrow.
