A late report today, sorry.

It was snowing lightly early this morning but has stopped now and is just cloudy at the moment here in the village but still seems to be snowing in places on the mountain. The forecast still shows that snow clouds will probably be with us for most of the coming week though we can probably expect bit by bit rather than any major dumps. There is also a good chance of stronger winds tomorrow and Saturday.
