That`s a bit more like it.

There has been 10cm at the peak over the past 24 hours, with more falling this morning. This will help refresh the variable conditions that the wind had created over the last few days. As I sat down to write this report it was snowing, but looking out the window right now it`s clearing up with broken cloud. It looks like it will be one of those days of heave flurries, however there is about 10-15cm expected to come from those flurries.

After calming down yesterday the wind is now moderate from the west, likely to be strong enough at the peak to be moving this new snow around. Temperatures remain cool, with that wind adding a little bite.

The snow is expected to continue for the week. Will this be one last hurrah before spring comes?
