We did eventually get rained on yesterday, but up on the mountains it was snowing by mid afternoon and we have some fresh cm this morning.

Goryu reporting 10-25cm, Hakuba 47 reporting 20-30cm, Cortina reporting 15-30cm, Tsugaike adding 20cm to it's tally. That probably gives a good idea of what to expect.

The snow is somewhat wet and heavy here at village level but hopefully lighter as you get higher. And snow should be falling throughout the day today even if it looks like from tomorrow it might become more sporadic rather than consistently falling from the skies. Having said that, down here at village there are even signs of a bit of blue sky and the sun at times. But as I said, forecast is for cloud/snow.

It's still not that cold this morning and currently around 0 degrees at base. We will probably see temperatures drop from this afternoon and tomorrow be much colder.
