There's lots of people coming up for the weekend this morning with a steady stream of cars going past at the moment.

There was some light snow early on this morning but things have cleared up and now the sun is out and there's an increasing amount of blue sky too.

Generally fine weather conditions are forecast for this long weekend (Monday is a holiday), though there looks like there might be a return to some snow around Tuesday. A fresh layer of snow will certainly be welcome by then.

In the meantime, enjoy the long weekend!

LATE SEASON REPORTING
The individual Now reports will continue in each area until the season in that place closes - some will continue daily, some will become less than daily once we get into 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.
