It is another warmish morning here in Zao. In fact, +4C which is positively warm for Zao in winter. With the last few days of weather conditions we could definitely be doing with a topup of fresh snow for the new year.... are we going to get it?

For the moment is just cloudy but light rain is very possible today. If we fast forward a bit though it should be snowing by tomorrow and I hope to be able to report fresh snowfall in my next report. Potentially heavy snow and strong winds are still on the forecast.
