The first proper snow of the winter has arrived. We woke to a little snow lying on the tops above 900m on Saturday morning and we had a few showers during the day that brought the snow line down to 600m. Over night we had more substantial snow falling down to 600m but today was bright and sunny.
Tomorrow will bring wet and warmer weather with trong winds and the freezing level rising to 2200m or so. This is only temporary though. The forecast is for colder weather for the rest of the week so we should see a little snow building up above 600m and the ground will start to cool down.
On your marks, get set ...... go!
