To say this this morning is a very cold morning in Zao would be an understatement. It is very, very, very cold and I think more than a few people will have needed some sort of encouragement to get out of bed this morning!

-16 degrees up top earlier on and easily in the minus double digits in the village, though there's not much of a wind at all and the clouds are not as thick as they have been - it is cloudy with some patches of clearer sky on show every now and again, only to be covered by that fast moving cloud again quickly. So quite changeable early this morning.

Not much new snow to report since yesterday really just a few cm. But more snow is forecast for every day this week and into the weekend as this prolonged mid-winter snap continues.

Great snow out there, but remember to wrap up enough if you want to venture out onto Zao.
