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.

Happy Tuesday!
