It's another mild morning here. Perhaps even the mildest yet. The thermometer outside is actually telling me +2 at the moment so I was a bit surprised to see it in the positive so early on... and it really doesn't feel that cold out there either. Some people may like that, but we want the cold to continue!

Even so, there has been a few cm of snow fall but it's a wet and heavy kind of snow. But certainly better than rain, so lets not complain! So relatively wet and heavy snow conditions out there this morning - good idea to wax up I think.

Right now the upper part of the mountain is covered in cloud and this light snow falling.

So how is that forecast looking for the weekend? There's a few different outlooks actually from different forecasts ranging from clear and sunny for the most part to light snow showers likely each day. But the general consensus seems to be that it will be generally fine weather with good visibility and the clearer conditions continuing into early next week. After the snow of today, not really much on the short term radar so fingers crossed that we get as much as possible today.
