Light snow showers and occasional sunshine

4th April 2017

There was a ‘greying’ of fresh snow on the tops this morning.  There were occasional light snow showers through the morning, and the sun was trying to get out by lunchtime.  It was generally fairly calm in leeward areas sheltered from the strong Westerly wind.

Further very light snow showers overnight on the tops, then generally dry through tomorrow with an easing West-North-Westerly wind.
