Just a bit more snow since the report yesterday to top things up.

This morning it is a mix of white and grey clouds and blue sky - and right now the sun is shining.

Another cold start but conditions in the day time are expected to be a bit milder over this weekend and perhaps early week but the snow should be back by Tuesday.

In the meantime, conditions are very nice this morning.

Have a great last day of the year and see you in January. All the best.
