Mainly cloudy on the mountain yesterday and we were treated to some light snow from about lunchtime (accounting for the number in the report today), clearing in the evening with tops of 3C. From all reports, the snow was a little slow no doubt due to the mixed conditions we’ve seen lately.

Today, mainly clear and sunny skies ahead with winds starting light and increasing to strong in the evening. We should see tops of 9C at the bottom and 5C at the top.

Reading ahead on the forecast yesterday there looked like there was going to be some snow coming our way around Friday, though looking on it now it seems to have done a Houdini, nowhere in sight. This is partially good news however as with the temps we’re seeing lately, there was a pretty high chance it was going to fall a little wetter... i.e. rain. This is why we look at a 3 day forecast in my reports, as it really can change overnight, so here goes…

Wednesday: some light rain showers, strong winds & tops of 8C
Thursday: mostly sunny with some afternoon rain showers, moderate winds easing & tops of 12C
Friday: light snow, light winds & tops of 3C
