Yesterday the snow fell lightly throughout most of the day and continued through to this morning but only amounted to 15cm. The snow is forecast to continue through to this evening, hopefully bringing another 10-15cm.

The wind was strong yesterday in the alpine areas and has scoured some ridges. Today the wind is moderate above 1300m but should ease in the afternoon.

The weekend forecast is for snow on Saturday evening that should continue through to mid morning Sunday. There may be some strong winds on Sunday as an occluded front passes over Central Japan.
