It is a fairly bright morning here in Zao with an overcast kind of look as some wispy clouds are up there in the sky. It was down to about -3 earlier on when I left my home this morning but now hovering around the 0 degrees mark in the village. Good visibility out on the mountain and I can see the top from base at the moment.

Where's this snow you were mentioning not so long ago? Still on the cards by looks and perhaps later this afternoon it will be snowing and a decent snowfall very possible tonight. Temperatures should drop and then get colder still Sunday onwards into next week. Strong winds likely tomorrow so need to keep an eye on that...
