Yesterday seemed to be all over the place.

In the morning southerly winds stopped a few lifts from moving though it eased off around lunchtime and we got some snow falling. Then we got the dreaded rain from the evening - at least it's perhaps slightly better than during the daytime...

Anyway this morning we are back to snow falling I am happy to report. Visibility fairly decent still and light to moderate snowfall just at the moment. Hopefully that will continue for the day today. The forecast is looking quite promising for the coming week actually - though just how exciting it will be depends on how the 'light snow' parts turn out. Heavier snowfall is due around Tuesday-Wednesday and also towards the end of the week.

So here's to a good upcoming week!
