Just a cm or so of snow overnight in Zao and light snow falling earlier on this morning. Fairly strong wind making itself heard and colder conditions than yesterday for sure. For now as I write this report the snow has eased up and it's just cloudy. Fast moving clouds actually and even some breaks opening up to show us the sky. Could it clear up?

The forecast for the coming days is a mix of snow, cloud and wind. Looks like the moderate to strong winds will be persistent through the week, but hopefully bring some decent snowfall as well from time to time. It should be keeping nice and cold through into at least early next week.
