Good morning from Zao and there's a bit more fresh snow on the ground here.

Much improved visibility this morning and generally cloudy skies above.

More snowfall is expected early in the week but before that we should be able to enjoy generally clearer conditions with some forecasts giving us the chance of light snowfall at times.
