An early morning fog and cloud this morning, though the foggy conditions have lifted in the last hour or so. A little more chilly than yesterday morning but still around 4C in the village at the moment. There is a bit of wind out there. And that's about it really.

Taking a look at the forecast we can expect to see the mercury rise somewhat for the weekend and into early next week with generally cloudy and/or sunny conditions for the next few days. The clouds we have over Zao now are set to probably clear up as the day moves on.
