Warmish here today and temps hit 11C in town yesterday.

It's 2C up high this morning and highs are forecast to reach 4C up the mountain and 13C in town. For the moment though, clouds are shielding us from the sun and I get the feeling we may have weather on the way.

It's been a few days of either rain or warmth or sun, not what we want but fortunately the tables may be turning. We have a robust snow dump forecast for tomorrow night and Thursday is a long way off and things change but the mountain forecast is for cold temps and 26cm, heavy snow fall. That traditionally can mean much much more and if it all comes through, it could be a whole new paradigm thereafter.

A look at the town forecast is for sub-zero temps and snow from Friday the 28th. Another promising sign. Fingers crossed what has been essentially a good early season, gets back on track.
