Morning.

A fine generally cloudy morning with new fresh snow to report.

And we are expecting a day of sunshine tomorrow - should be a good day to be out with the camera.

Next decent snowfall looks due around Wednesday into Thursday but we are looking at milder conditions with the chance of rain especially at lower elevations. Let's hope not!
