There are reports of light snow falling all around the Valley.

Don’t worry, this isn’t the start of another big snow event, but it is a harbinger of rain to come.

There will be scattered flurries through the day which might turn to light rain as it warms and as we prepare for a big rain system starting late tonight.

By 10PM tonight full rain will move in:

Here is the temperature profile this morning (10AM) just above freezing which will support some light snow all over the island as bands of showers go through.

And here is the profile for 10PM tonight showing temperatures over 5º C:

We should get around 30mm of rain (1.28in on this chart) between 10PM and this time tomorrow morning.

Happy Tuesday!
