Looking North East this morning, a few high clouds around but looking like a great day.

There were a few clouds around yesterday but still an unbelievably great day with some awesome snow conditions.

At 2240 meters the temperature was -4.5, winds were 10-20 KPH from the S. At 1550 meters the temperature was 0, no new snow reported there overnight. In the valley it was -1. Observations taken at 06:00 Hrs this AM.

For the forecast, sunny skies will prevail into tomorrow evening. Should see some cloud development during the afternoon. Unsettled for Friday with showers in the afternoon. Saturday expect cloudy skies with snow during the day and Fl at 1400 meters. Sunday looks unsettled but the models are not consistent. Snow possible for Sunday afternoon into Sunday night with FL at 1100 meters. Could see the Fl go to 2700 meters today. Guesstimates 5-8 cm during the day Saturday, Flurries on Sunday, Monday morning we may see 5-10 cm
