It's trying to snow but as I look outside just now it's not quite getting there with it best being described as sleet right now. The mountains are covered in cloud and fog as well this morning so there's not much of anything to see. This is due to clear up quite quickly though with forecasts telling us there's a good chance of the sun making an appearance later on in the day.

Temperatures should remain quite cold over the next few days, it should start getting a bit warmer again sometime over the weekend.
