As you might recall we were pretty excited about the prospect of a day of clear blue skies yesterday morning after that lovely start to the day.

Those blue skies didn't last for long though with clouds starting to appear not too long after the report was posted and by 10am it was almost completely overcast/grey. Sure did change quickly! Probably because the sun wasn't allowed to do much, it remained cold for the whole day.

Early afternoon the skies started to clear again and for an hour or two late afternoon we were treated once again to some sunny conditions.

The day has started with grey clouds all round this morning. No fresh snow to report.

It's not going to be as cold today - well, that's what the forecast tells us anyway with a high of around +6C expected later.

Unfortunately, there's a good chance of rain here in town but lets hope not for long as it should be snowing by the end of the day with snow forecast for the day tomorrow as well. Should go straight into snow at higher elevations.
