Good morning from Zao.

There's not much to report this morning. Fine and sunny clear skies and a spring feel in the air. Lots of people arriving for their weekend in Zao.

More cloud is expected tomorrow and perhaps some rain. The next few days are going to get rather warm with temperatures even perhaps approaching double digits tomorrow.

I'm pleased to report that after the weekend it should be again getting colder and snow is forecast for around the middle of the week.
