As expected a fine morning here. The sun is out and we have mostly clear blue skies above us.

Rare this season so far!

The sun is going to warm things up today and we will probably see the temperature venture up into positive numbers. Though should remain low numbers.

No major snowfall on the 6 day forecast, though a good chance of snow falling on Saturday. Until then a mix of cloud, sun and the odd snow shower is on the forecast for Zao.
