Good morning from a lovely sunny Zao. It's going to be one of those really great clear days by the looks of things.

Yesterday we were treated to that new snowfall in the morning which really put some smiles on faces for the weekend. It was a cloudy day generally but from time to time there were clearings in the clouds and some really nice views opened up.

A different story this morning of course with the sun out early on. It is also much colder this morning, -6 degrees just a bit earlier on and while earlier on it was down to minus double figures, up at Utopia now they are recording a temperature of -8 degrees.

Mixed messages about tonight and tomorrow, ranging from rain down in the village to heavy snow up on the mountain, along with strong winds! I would say it will be something in between that (whatever that might be!) and I'll bring you the latest tomorrow.
