The sun is out at the moment this morning with more blue sky appearing. Large shadows in places due to lots of cloud still around up there but it's a feel-good morning weather wise.

Keeping good and cold and so snow conditions on the slopes should be great this morning with a nice new layer to enjoy.

Over the next few days a varied menu of cloud, sun, light snow showers (nothing major) seems to be forecast.

Looks quiet after the busy weekend.
