This morning I don't have much choice and have to mention that 'R' word. Yes, it's raining here just slightly early on and very mild with it. It should quicky ease off though and just cloud is forecast for the rest of the day. Mild conditions likely to continue into tomorrow with those colder temps we are hoping for arriving from Tuesday - hopefully bringing with them some more snowfall.
