This morning feels more like early April than the beginning of February. It's currently 5 degrees ABOVE freezing with a light, but steady rain. This is hardly the sort of weather you would expect from what is usually the coldest time of the year. The roads are going to be a lot slushier today, so please take extra caution when out and about. Winds are also a problem, with strong gusts of over 7 m/s.

This warm spell is supposed to end abruptly this afternoon when the front passes through. Snow and cold temperatures downwards of -10 are in the forecast for this evening. Tomorrow promises to bring more snow and cold; hopefully we'll see some substantial accumulations to bulk up the places that are taking a hit from this rain right now.

In other news, the 48th Annual Furano Ski and Snow Festival is being held February 2nd and 3rd (tonight and tomorrow.) The festivities run from 7:00pm to 9:30pm tonight, and from 10:00am to 2:00pm tomorrow.
