Another case of blue skies we were seeing a bit earlier getting covered by cloud this morning. It's a cold start to the day and we do have a few cm since yesterday. No wind and generally just cloudy but bright. That's about it this morning.

Snow is forecast for today and then from the Friday again so it should be fresh conditions for the weekend.
