Whn I looked at my viola this morning I noticed that overnight the G string had broken.

I've broken strings tuning before but have never had one break while the instrument was just sitting dunno

My brother-in-law's violin did that once, but it was on an older one that he hadn't used in almost a year. It's odd that yours did it overnight though. Better then than while you were playing I guess. smile

last year I had a Prelude (steel core) string break on the G position overnight while in the case... I accused my friend of messing with it and overtightening it but they claimed they never touched it! go figure...

Was a Donimant G silver wound. It surprises me. May just have been a dud one

Where did it break? At the nut, where it rests on the bridge, by the tail-piece?
Sometimes there is a sharp edge at one of these places.
