Furano town had rain most of the night, turning to snow at around 6am. Seems to have fallen as snow on the higher peaks of the resort.

My mercury thermometre on the verandah in Kitanomine read 2C at 6.40am, but I think I need to try a few locations. It isn't matching up with the town's digital thermometre only about 500m away. Although that one is near the Sorachi River so it could simply be cooler.

During my 8am school run, the above-mentioned digital thermometre read zero degrees Celcius. It read the same at my 9am office dash.

It's very wet snow (fast becoming sleet) falling in Furano town now. No wind thank goodness.

The Furano resort mountains were obscured by clouds and fog this morning, but it looks like it's been snowing up high over night which could be good for a base. The snow in Furano is light therefore it needs a wettish base to stick properly. Without a wettish base, it can blow away.

There are cold fronts forecast next week which will probably be the start of winter proper.

Around town, you see a lot of snow shovels ready, snow blowers being moved around, road barriers being erected for winter, garden shrubs and trees being cosseted for the snowfall to come. Town is busy.

The school children were marching through the falling snow today like nothing was different. And it woulndn't be for people who grow up here.

The forecast high for today is 3C at 3pm. Rain is forecast for 6pm in town. By 6am it's forecast to be minus 3 Celcius.
