The snow clouds are back with us this morning - not a whole lot of fresh yet but snow should be falling through the day and probably tomorrow as well.

It is keeping relatively mind this morning but will get colder as the day progresses, with colder temperatures due tomorrow.

Looks like it's poor visibility on mountain this morning and there's a gusty wind with us as well.

Let's see how much snow we can get today.
