Cloudy conditions on this warm morning in Zao, but rain is expected later and tomorrow. Strong winds are very likely tomorrow as well.

The wild swings in temperatures are going to continue on Monday as well with a huge drop back down to mid-winter cold conditions -- and snowfall too in the first half of the coming week.

So it's looking like it is going to be best to be here in the first few days of next week than this weekend.
