Yesterday was a fine day and today also looks set to be a clear and sunny day - less clouds early on than yesterday... in fact I'm not sure that I can see a cloud out there. It's just sunny, blue skies and very bright. Today you do not want to be forgetting your sunglasses and applying that sunscreen!

I was just reading over some of the other Now reports on here and it looks like a similar kind of pattern. Tomorrow is going to get warmer and there's a chance of rain as well as stronger winds. Perhaps snow higher up if we are lucky.

Late Sunday into early Monday though it should be getting colder again and we will probably see some snowfall as well.

For now though, a beautiful good-conditions-spring-like day in Zao.
