Sorry for the late report I had some connection issues earlier on.

The day started off fine here in Zao with a few cm of new snowfall, a temperature of about -5C at breakfast time and the sun making everything look ever so pretty. A low of -14C recorded at the top area of the resort earlier.

It's a much more cloudy affair now that we are in the afternoon. And looks like it will be tonight so the people going up to see the monsters tonight likely won't get the clear view down to the lower valleys unless it clears up soon. Always a chance.

The next few days seems to be a mix of cloud and sun, with the odd sprinkling of snow here and there but nothing significant.
