Morning from Zao.

The sun is out again and it's a mix of blue skies and cloud this morning.

Check out the temperatures being reported by the resort - minus seven up top and plus five at base at base. And ten degrees at by Uwanodai. That's some range!

Continued fine weather is forecast over the weekend as well as gradually increasing temperatures into next week.
