After those amazing blue skies of yesterday, this morning we started with similarly clear skies, but since then some clouds have formed above Zao. It's still bright though and the sun is out.

Not much prospect of any further decent snowfalls over the next week. Tomorrow should be fine again and then Monday might well be wet as rain is forecast.

Hope you have a fun weekend.
