Welcome to one of those days. One of those glorious days that makes you feel just so happy to be here and able to experience it. Yes, we have blue skies and Zao is looking spectacular. Yes, I know I'm sort of biased... but really, it is!

It's colder than yesterday, and was a cold one overnight, but the sun is out and it will warm up during the daytime.

Cloud is due to move in later on today though and we might see some snow higher up and even a chance of rain lower down into tomorrow morning. Hopefully that won't last long but tomorrow we are looking at temperatures rising above zero. Next snow due later on Friday according to the latest forecast, but I don't think it will be a huge snowfall and following that mixed conditions with a chance of light snow into early next week. Nothing substantial though.

Night time 'Light Up' has another 8 days to run, ending at the end of this month.
