Good morning from Zao.

The sun is shining through my window this morning and it looks really fantastic outside. Going to be a great morning for taking the camera up with you.

We may get some intermittent light snow at times over the next few days but nothing major. I'd say we are more likely to get more sunny skies. For the next decent snow the forecasts still show that from Tuesday.
