Temperatures are set to get warmer from tonight and lots of sunshine over the next few days.
A nice chilly -11 degrees up top at the moment so the snow will be nice and light. Be sure to rug up and get up there for a magic winter day. The bus timetables all change today too and we will post the new one after this. Anyone driving up please be very careful there were a few accidents on the roads yesterday due to the icy and snowy conditions.
