The report is late today folks so it is more of a wrap up of the day than a report.

About 3pm yesterday it was snowing and I thought great, the rain has missed us. Then by 4pm it was raining moderately and continued throughout the evening. Temperatures were warm yesterday and stayed warm overnight. This resulted in massive puddles around the village and the road turning into slush in the morning, and then a river at night. The temperatures hit +8c in Furano during the day.

The snow on the ski area was like spring corn and the sun was out for the whole day. It was a great day of spring skiing until the sun went down in the afternoon and the chopped up snow started to freeze leading to rough conditions.

Warm weather is forecast again for tomorrow morning but temperatures will plummet back to negatives by evening and we may even get some light snow come through.
