Dusting on the tops

14th April 2017

Wintry showers on the tops today.

Below a tour East to West  grabbing whatever was in view between the showers.

Looks like it’s more of the same tomorrow – only a bit colder, bit snowier and a bit windier! Forecast of further wintry showers throughout, with the overnight gale force Westerly winds easing a bit and becoming West-North-Westerly during the day. Will be cool on the tops…..
