Morning from Zao, and it was just a cloudy one to start us off and there has been light snow falling at times but not the kind that will add up to new cm.

Still cloudy now, with some breaks here and there and glimpses of the sky, but usually quickly covered again.

Expecting clearer skies tomorrow and maybe even some sun before heading back into snow falling from the skies later on Thursday and into Friday.
