A very good morning to you from Zao. And yes a good morning it is too with at least 20cm of snow overnight and has been coming down with some purpose early this morning... the rate that brings with it a decent accummulation. Curiously though that stopped and right now I can actually see some blue sky. So it's changeable conditions this morning. There's not much of a wind but it is a cold -10 degrees. The snow quality is really great out there though, so for everyone here for New Year they won't be disappointed.

Similar kind of conditions are forecast for the next few days too.
