It's an absolute stunner of a morning here.

Thinga didn’t clear up as we were expecting yesterday – not until the evening anyway. For the most part it just kept on snowing through the day. By evening Kagura had reported a further 40cm of snowfall, though there was much less down here at town level. Still, very nice to get the tracks filled in during the day.
By late evening there was quite a lot of clear skies up above, though it was a cold night and it is a cold start to the day as well..

No new snowfall overnight to report, and we are all set for a lovely sunny day today in the region with the sun out from early on and temperatures likely to rise into positive numbers by mid-morning.

Not a cloud to be seen, just some early morning fog in places.

Beautiful.

Conditions should be great everywhere today.

Things are gradually getting busier now It was on the news last night about how a fair few people are lucky enough to have a 9 day long holiday this New Year period and yesterday was the first of those with trains overcapacity and roads busy. No doubt more of those folk will be turning up to ski and snowboard tomorrow and in the coming days.
