Good morning.

The sun has been out early morning.

Is this the calm before that promised storm? Let's hope so. The southerly wind is due to switch over to north westerly, bringing snowfall with it.

It has actually started to cloud over since the clearer skies a little earlier on, and snow is due to start falling by around lunchtime.

The forecasts are still saying decent snow today and tomorrow.

So I hope to be bringing you good snow news in my next report.
