Weather

Conditions remain excellent in the mountains today; after a good and chilly night, perfectly clear skies and sunshine await this morning. In the afternoon, just some thin high altitude clouds will float around. They won't be heading anywhere fast though, as the Northerly wind has settled. Temperatures are expected to get up to a max of +4°C at 2000m and +2°C at 3000m in the sun. Tonight will stay calm, clear and reasonably warm.
