Good morning from Zao.

Fine weather and good views yesterday, a bit more overcast this morning. But it is going to be a mild day.

We're all hoping for a bit of fresh snowfall tomorrow as the temperatures drop again. Let's see.

Some of the Now daily reports will appear later than usual on Thursday 7th March - it may even get to be the end of the day, but they will eventually appear! This is due to some important server/security maintenance work that we need to see to. Apologies in advance for any delays.
