Good morning from Zao. This morning it's remaining mild and mostly just cloudy for the moment.

We could do with some fresh snow and hopefully it should be falling quite soon today and for most of the day today and tomorrow as well. Might have to watch out for potentially strong winds as well, but if they bring with them a decent amount of snow I'll be happy with that.

Snow clouds may be close by through until around Wednesday, but after that we will probably get to see a lot of sunshine and come weekend temperatures will be rising (and hopefully will not stay there!). Who knows in this oddity of a season, just need to keep on taking it day by day...
