It is just cloudy this morning in Zao, the loaded snow clouds have mostly moved on - there's even a bit of sun at the moment.

We may get a bit of light snow at times but generally over the next few days we are expecting more sun than snow, before some potentially decent snow later on Friday.

It should be keeping nice and cold though (perhaps less so tomorrow) so snow conditions should keep well.
