As expected, it's going to be a beautiful day here in Zao today.

Clear blue skies are the headline for the day, with just a dusting of snow since my last report.

No wind and not too cold - but hopefully won't be getting too warm either even with the sun.

There's likely going to be more sunshine tomorrow and a return to snowfall on Saturday, though it might get slightly too warm with a chance of some rain. Let's just hope we can avoid that.

For the moment though, beautiful weather.
