It's a stunner of a morning here in Zao.

Blue skies and sun.

Happily it's a good crisp morning too and feels pretty cold though no doubt it will warm up as the day goes on.

More clear conditions are expected tomorrow and Sunday early week we are expecting slightly warmer conditions. Should take a dip as we get to Tuesday though when some fresh snow is forecaqst.

Don't forget the sunscreen (and camera) today!
