Back to the sun and blue skies this morning in Zao with just a few fluffy and very friendly-looking white clouds here and there. There's no wind and a mild start to the day, so a perfect spring ski day for weekend visitors to enjoy.

More cloud will move in again tomorrow and there might be some rain late tomorrow into Tuesday. It might get a little warmer today rising to perhaps even 10 degrees, but from tomorrow a little cooler and constant throughout the week according to the forecast.
