It's another mild morning in Zao.

There's lots of clouds, lots of fog, not much wind... and a bit of rain forecast.

But the rain will turn into snow by tomorrow morning and should continue. There's a chance of snowfall through into Saturday though back to clearer skies from Sunday into early week. What falls in the next 48 hours will be treasured dearly!
