It seems a while since we got sunny blue skies over us here in Zao - but it's one of those mornings today.

Very fine conditions this morning. Just 3cm of snow since yesterday to report but I think people will be excited just to get to see everything after quite a lot of white-out (or near white-out) days recently!

Even with the sun it should be keeping very cold today, with slightly warmer conditions expected tomorrow.

The forecast looks to be pointing to snowfall tomorrow and then again around Saturday, and those regular refreshes will be welcome (as always).
