The last day of February was a beauty weather-wise with clear blue skies right through the day.

This morning the sun is out and there's lots of blue sky once again though some thin cloud around as well. Forecast to be another sunny day and for temperatures down at base to rise to around +6C later on so another mild one too (after a cold overnight and chilly early morning).

I would expect some icy conditions early on before the sun gets to work and softening things up.

How about some fresh snow for early March though? Fingers crossed by the end of tomorrow though it might not be cold enough for it to be snow at base (good chance of rain according to some forecasts) but hopefully it'll be snowing top to base on Friday as temperatures drop again.
