Sunday saw heavy rain over the whole of Minakami and more high temps.

Light rain continued through until early this morning when it turned to snow which has been falling moderately ever since.

Temps are currently -2C down in the village and winds are howling in from the North.

The forecast is for more snow tomorrow though winds are expected to drop right off.

Wednesday looks like heavier snow before things are set to clear on Thursday.

With the unusual weather this year, there has been a stark contrast between temperatures during the snow storms and the higher temps that follow.

For powder hunters, Wednesday and Thursday look like the days this time round.
