The forecast wasn't for a fine start to the day today, but that's what we got!

Since the photo below was taken though things have started to get more generally cloudy and will probably continue to do so. Later on we are expecting possibly rain and eventually snow tonight and into tomorrow morning.

There's not much snow on the forecast for after that though - more likely sunny skies for the weekend.

Anyway, let's see what we get in time for my report tomorrow. Fingers crossed for a fresh layer of snow!

LATE SEASON REPORTING
The individual Now reports will continue in each area until the season in that place closes - some will continue daily until the end, some will become less than daily now that we are in April.

Once the season has finished everywhere, we will be adding a general season wrap up to each of the reports, where we will also answer questions and comments that we regularly get sent. Some do keep on coming back! The end of season message will be up at the end of Golden Week in early May.

Thank you for reading.
