Good morning from Zao.

I'm very pleased (and also somewhat relieved!) to report that it is much colder this morning. Earlier on it was below zero and just now a little above which is some contrast with yesterday.

Just cloudy at the moment with no noticeable wind.

There is a chance of snowfall today according to the forecast so perhaps I'll be able to report a fresh layer tomorrow.
