After that beautiful start to the day yesterday, it remained a fine day. It was a real feel good day. I wish there was snow all year so we could enjoy this...

Once again though, as so often has been the case this season, thin wispy clouds started to form and by late afternoon the skies ended up rather overcast. Have we had any days that have remained totally cloud free?

Still, like I said it was a real feel good day with the snow keeping pretty good too. Popular resorts had a very busy day and I would imagine the same will be the case today as well.

There's no new snowfall to report.

This morning the sun has been out again actually. It wasn't cold overnight and it's nice and bright now and quite a mild morning. There was some blue sky around before but it has been gradually getting more overcast (again).

The forecast for the morning is cloudy conditions so perhaps that will continue. It should get colder this afternoon and we're expecting snow by tonight - we'll just have to see if we get any rain or sleet before it turns to snow like some of the local forecasts tell us. Surely it'll be straight into snow at least at higher elevations.

Snow and low temperates are lined up for tomorrow and beyond, so it'll be back to new fresh snow on the slopes once again.

Should be a good day. I hope you have a good one.
