Good morning from Zao.

A mix of cloud and (increasingly) sun breaking through said clouds and blue sky this morning.

It's still keeping rather mild - as it seems is the case in many regions of Japan at the moment. But we do seem to be set for a change. A good one. Tomorrow should be colder. Hopefully there'll be a bit of snow but there is a greater chance over the weekend.

Fresh snow please!
