The sun is out!

Hiding behind some of the remaining clouds at times, but it looks like things might well clear today. That certainly looks like what will happen generally over the next few days anyway. Clearer skies, not as cold.

It's keeping very cold this morning though, helping keep the snow conditions in shape.
