Morning from here in Zao and while it has been cloudy there's actually a bit of sun appearing just now. Bright morning with good visibility.

Quite chilly this morning, but still on the mild side.

Stormy conditions still expected tomorrow - snow, wind and somewhat colder. A good delivery of snow is needed so one day of storm sounds good to me. Snow clouds maybe remain close by until the end of the weekend.
