Good morning and it looks like today will be another fine one - perhaps not ending up as sunny as yesterday with a more silver-blue hue to everything early on but it is bright and just thin wispy-like clouds up above. Similar to yesterday, a high of around 4 degrees is forecast for midday, so it feels quite mild. Snow is forecast for later on this evening and from there we have a few conflicting reports. Some say it will continue snowing right through until Tuesday while others have the heavy snow we are due now starting around Saturday. But I think we can still say with some confidence that the heavy snowfall is coming over the weekend.

We will of course update you with the latest tomorrow morning.
