Good morning and here we are - another Monday morning.

It's a calm and mild morning. Bright but overcast. Spring-like.

Things should be getting colder tonight though and there's a chance of snow (rain before it?) overnight tonight and snow tomorrow. There's further snow later in the week on the forecast as well, so we can look forward to the chance of a fresh top-up.
