Yesterday was one of those days when you just had to get out, if you were able to of course!

Clear blue skies, sun... magnificent views of the surrounding mountains.

The snow has been keeping fairly decent higher up especially as well, so it was a good day.

Though really we shouldn't even be talking about conditions keeping decent in the first part of January! Needless to stay we are still sitting here waiting for the huge snowfalls to arrive.

So let's take a look at the various forecasts.

The general consensus seems to be rain later on today, after the sunny but overcast start we have at the time of writing. It's due to warm up to around +5C this afternoon and as of 9am around +2C. Though by the end of the day it should be snowing as temps drop and then we will hopefully be into this few days of snowfall in the region. What we want is consistent heavy snow for at least a few days... whether that is what we will get or not is unclear. We'll just have to take it day by day and I'll bring you the latest tomorrow morning.
