It is a cloudy and foggy start to the day in Zao - with some snow falling! Just a bit, but great to see. It is likely to perhaps be falling as rain as the day moves on and things get warmer, but right now it is a cold morning. Very poor visibility on the mountain this morning.

Tomorrow will be much warmer with a forecast of cloud and rain showers, with there being more chance of some slight snowfall on the mountain on Tuesday night into Wednesday.

Please note that from now until the end of the season in Zao, I will be continuing to update this Zao Now page a few times a week.
