Well this morning has started with a mix of cloud and a bit of blue sky. The sun is showing through right now too.

The forecasts do seem to say 'snow' though during today and through tomorrow as well so we're all hoping. It's going to get up to around 4C during today though according to the same forecasts, so a bit concerned about that. Temperatures just don't seem to want to keep down of late.

Though having said that, tomorrow is set to be colder and so perhaps we can expect some decent proper snowfall. We could really do with it still of course. Upper slopes are where the best conditions are but snow is thin on the ground in lower areas.

It's back to work for lots of people today after the New Year period so the slopes should be less busy.
