Good morning from Kiroro!

With light snow falling through the night, 11 cm has accumulated at the base and 12 cm at the peak in the last 24 hours, and current snow depth is 205 cm at the base and 335 cm at the peak.

It's currently lightly snowing and overcast but starting to clear at the base, with the snow swirling around a bit in the light wind down here. It's warmed up compared with the last few days and freezing levels may rise as high as 900 m tomorrow morning. Even so, the heavy precipitation predicted for tomorrow should still fall as snow, with more than 30 cm coming over the day tomorrow.

Not much snow is in the forecast today, but occasional showers may produce a few more centimeters, and the southwesterly winds should stay around 20 km/h during the day today, but may rise to 40 km/h over night, and will likely pick up considerably tomorrow with westerlies up to 55 km/h midday and the possibility of 70 km/h winds tomorrow night.
