Today was supposed to mark the beginning of Ski Season in Furano, but unfortunately a lingering autumn continues to drag on, making things difficult for snow-making crews. This year marks the latest first snowfall of the season in central Hokkaido since they started keeping records back in 1888. While the upper half of the mountain has seen plenty of snow over the past two weeks, the town below has yet to see a single flurry fly.

The good news is, all that is about to change. It's currently 5 degrees above and raining buckets throughout the town. The upper half of the mountain, barely visible through the low-lying clouds, had plenty of snow on it this morning, putting the rain/snow line at about 600m. A low-pressure system working its way across Hokkaido will continue to dominate the area through the day and on into tomorrow evening. As the front passes through, it will pull in cold, polar air off the continent and all this rain should change to snow sometime tomorrow. Hopefully we'll get a solid base from this, the much-anticipated first snowfall of the season.

Furano is bracing itself for the first taste of winter this season. Everyone is busy putting winter tires on their vehicles, because today very well might be the last throes of autumn.
