It's keeping quite cold this morning. Just tiny bit of snow falling yesterday evening for a short while but it didn't really amount to anything. This morning mostly cloudy conditions with perhaps a bit of light snow falling in higher elevations. There's a bit of blue sky about but not the clearer skies that some local forecasts have down for us - not yet anyway, perhaps it will clear up.

Tomorrow possibly a mix of cloud and sunshine and fingers crossed it'll remain quite cold as well and not warm up much.
