A few clouds rolling into the valley today which are hinting that the weather forecast is correct and we may see some precipitation overnight and continuing through tomorrow. The valley forecast is for rain/snow – snow overnight and rain as it warms through the day.Not as cold overnight, -3 degrees in the valley, currently 7.5 degrees at 760m so its warming up fast. Temperatures on the resort are in the positive also, 2.5 degrees at 1400m, but up high at 2080 its still holding in the minus at -2.

Winds are pretty much zero, snow will be good quality groomers but may get a bit icy later in the day with no sun out there.

Forecast is for a mixed bag of weather over the upcoming week with snow, rain, cloud and patches of sun all thrown in there.

Make the most of the good weather and here’s hoping for some cooling and another dump early in March!
