It's back to cold this morning and some decent snowfall happening outside. Over 5cm so far and if it continues like it is now it should be piling up quite quickly. The cold and snow should take a firm grip on things today and there's a chance of stronger winds. Things seem ok for the moment in that respect.

Poor visibility this morning though.

Similar conditions are expected tomorrow as well.
