We received some light snow last night but moisture content was high and it cleared after dropping a few centimeters. Most likely very wet snow or rain down in the town. The night was clear till late and then rain came in followed by snowfall which kicked off around 8:30am this morning. Its been piling up all day with strong winds and there is 30-40cm in various parts and most importantly, its quite unstable.

Am writing this at 6pm and its coming in really hard but still a bit more moist than what we usually get though not heavy at all... Weird snow, make your riding decisions accordingly and expect tomorrow that Hodaigi and Okutone will be pumping and that Tenjin will be closed due to Avi risk.

Forecast is for it to keep on snowing through the end of the forecast.
