This morning starts as we had yesterday. Some cloud, some blue sky, some sun. Nice.

A few cm of snowfall overnight and another cold start to the day in Zao. -5 at base, -11 at top station.

Still quite busy this morning.... last runs of the holidays for lots of people I would guess.

Similar conditions forecast for tomorrow and maybe a clearer day on Tuesday?
