Well Golden Week hasn't been all that golden up this way so far. It's mostly been grey and raining. Last thursday night actually saw some cold air move over the region with snow falling on the mountain above about 400m. Friday fined up later in the day and Saturday was fine and mild early on. Later though the rain returned and yesterday saw rain throughout the day. Last night the wind really picked up and colder air started funnelling in once again. This morning the temperature has been dropping and currently there is a sleet/wet snow mix at village level with snow falling higher up on the mountain. The winds though are still extreme and no lifts are currently running.

The rain is expected to continue for the next could of days but it will warm up a bit more than it has today. Then we should have a few days of mostly fine weather to see out the holiday period.
