It's a fine morning in Zao as the fine spring weather continues. Maybe not for much longer th backough as we have something of a storm on the way for tomorrow though rain is looking more likely than snow, but we can always hope for some fresh up top.

Early week though it should clear up again and we'll be back to clearer skies and warming up again by the middle of the week.

Zao is expected to be quite busy this weekend.
