The snow I forecast to come after lunch yesterday didn't end up coming to later in the evening but come it did laying down another 10-20cm. Although not quite enough to completely fill in all of yesterdays tracks it should still be pretty good up there today. This morning dawned reasonably clear but snow has started to fall again currently.
I know yesterday I indicated a somewhat gloomy outlook for the coming week but this weekend it's now looking as though a low will develop over Honshu and move up to Hokkaido on Saturday. Snow-forecast is forecasting some very big snowfalls throughout the weekend. The exact path of the low will make a big difference to how much snow we end up actually getting. If it tracks a little further to the east then we could end up with not that much or further to the west could mean some rain at first. Let's just hope snow-forecast has it right!
At this stage Thursday and Friday are still expected to be mild and we can expect slightly above freezing temps at village level through the day with some wet snow. Today will continue to have some occasional snow showers but will probably fine up later. Avalanche danger is relatively low and all gates will be open.
