Apologies for the late report today.

It has been a cloudy day. Lots of fog around too making visibility on upper slopes pretty bad for the most part.

Better lower down and actually quite bright at the moment as evening approaches. Moderate winds today.

Chance of rain tomorrow. I am hoping we can avoid it.
