Morning.

Really cold overnight last night and a cold start to the day.

Another close on 10cm of fresh to report this morning but right now the sun is out and it is clearing up to be a fine day. Nice start to the weekend for sure.

A bit of a blowy wind but not enough to cause any issues.

Tomorrow is set to be fine too -- the next snow is due sometime mid-week.

For now though, conditions are very good for the weekend. Come and join us!
