Good morning from Zao.

We had some fresh snow yesterday in a return to winter-like conditions. Always very good to see that happen and a bonus for everyone who was able to be here to enjoy it.

Note: the snow I'm recording in this report is from yesterday.

This morning it is mostly cloudy with some light snow falling in places.

Things should clear up by tomorrow with sunny skies forecast along with temperatures rising a little during the week.

Next report due by the weekend.
