It's back to a warmer morning, with temperatures up into positive numbers even on many parts of the mountain.

Foggy too.

A light wind and while it was just cloudy earlier it's now raining here with snow higher up. Stronger winds expected later on today and it is due to get colder so hopefully it'll be snowing down here too at base.
